Mad About Magpies

Many people look to the natural world for clues about living a more harmonious life. For example, we aspire to traits we associate with certain animals: the wisdom of the owl, the noble bearing of the bald eagle, or the grace of the swan.

Many people look to the natural world for clues about living a more harmonious life. For example, we aspire to traits we associate with certain animals: the wisdom of the owl, the noble bearing of the bald eagle, or the grace of the swan.

In Mad About Magpies, producer Guy Hand wonders what nature is trying to teach us when it starts acting like some pushy, poorly socialized uncle, the one with the loud voice who moves in uninvited and threatens to eat everything in sight. This is a look at that much maligned magpie.

Mad About Magpies was produced in 2005.
