Magpie Cushion

The Magpies, One for Sorrow, Two for Joy, are associated with witchcraft because of their defining duality – they are black and they are white.

They are risk takers and they tease other birds, even large birds of prey.

Magpies are great thieves, collecting and hoarding bright and shiny objects to decorate their nests, over which they chatter with one of the most developed sung languages in the field.
