This morning when I was in the bathroom, a magpie flew to the window and flapped there for about 5 seconds and then flew off. I recall reading something years ago about birds at the window but don't remember the specifics - does anyone have any ideas? x

did you salute it?

I would normally have done as we have a pair who lodge in the beech tree in the garden and I try to everytime I see them (arm gets a bit achy after a while!) but this morning I didn't. Its never happened before and it took me by suprise.

you only need to salute if it's a single one...

1 for sorrow. etc

Laugh away but I don't pay any heed if it's through glass. If I see two I open the window but if only one I'm safe as houses

I heard and still believe that if a robin enters the doorway someone will pass away. Coincidence maybe but that has happened to me.

Gawd..... what about a bird that gets in your house and can't get out? Came home from work a week ago and a Starling had flapped its ay down the chimney and, from the amoun of blood on the windows at each en of the room, it had repeatedly flown into the windows desperate to get out. I opened the windows and it flew away safely but it must have been terrified and in pain.

Well, it would seem as if I am fine and nothing untoward is likely to happen - plus it was pretty gusty this morning so I will put it down to that and not a sign of impending doom - thanks guys!
