Monday after dinner the sun was still shining bright. I had to get out, but didn't want to go too far. So I headed on over to West Chester Lagoon Nature Trail. Even if nothing is going on, the scenery is always great and the sunsets lately have been awesome.
Not much was happening so I decided to head back to my truck. That's when I noticed a young moose wading through the marsh. As I was taking pix's, I noticed a magpie that wouldn't cut it a break. It was squawking at every move it made. That young moose just mossied along hardly paying any attention to the magpie at all. That magpie just wouldn't give up.
After a bit I gave up and started to mossie towards the truck when I noticed the magpie hopping on the moose for a ride. it would peck at the moose and fly off. A few minutes later it would do it again and again, but the moose really didn't care. Once it turned around and looked at the magpie, then it went back to more munching.
After the moose mossied far enough away, the magpie gave up. I believe it's just a little too early for the magpie to be protecting a nest, but then maybe not. Check out more pix's with the link below.
