Imping The Magpie

Tonight I was asked to help stick flight feathers onto another bird. It's a young magpie someone wanted to keep as a pet, so they clipped its wings. Then they let it go. Whee!

We'll use araldite and toothpicks this time. It'll be a lot easier than imping the eagles. And this bird won't try to rip off my face. Actually, it will try because it'll be really pissed off, but it's a lot smaller than an eagle and I'm not shit-scared of magpies.
