I’m sure most of you’ve seen magpies around where you live at some point in your lives and have heard that they supposedly love to collect/steal shiny objects.Apparently this is just based on European folklore and has no scientific basis which was news to me when I read an article about it recently.Anyway, I won’t get bogged down in that.
