And the magpies join the family

As I fixed breakfast for the dogs, I heard the familiar knocking at the bottom of my porch door that tells me that the Stellar Jays are tired or waiting for me to bring out breakfast to them. I went to the door, bag of peanuts in hand, only to look down and find two magpies earnestly knocking their beaks against the bottom of the door.  I guess they had a meeting with the Stellar Jays and decided to share the responsibility of getting my attention when I was late with breakfast.
