Magpie 39

Oh, look, a pile of leaves. I wonder if there's any bugs.
bugs ;;; bugs ;;; bugs
Oh yes, bugs. Very juicy.
There's Clara. She wants my bugs.
I'll peck her if she tries.
thinks she's so fine in her red feathers
I'll peck her. She's not getting mine.
Oh, there's Rocky. Sooo handsome
Shake my feathers out, yes. Ohhh yes
Bug! got it.
Rocky's scratching in the dirt, looking us over with his bright eye,
Here! Right here!
I'll just walk over to that tree, show him my good side.
Here's Bess, strutting around, thinks she's so fine.
Get out of my way!
Peck you! I will.
Doesn't know a grub from a piece of wood, that Bess.
Ain't no bugs over here
bugs ;;; bugs ;;; bugs
Oh, here's the Farmer! Where's the bucket of corn?
Where is it!
Gotta get there first Gotta get the corn.
Where is it? Get out of the way, you chickens!
Peck you! I will!
Here's a nice pebble. I like that one.
Here's the Farmer. He's picking me up!
He's got my feet! Help!
He's taking me away!

Getting all the good grub is what got her hanging by her legs. She was the fattest. Great job.
