I went out with my fz20 early this morning and came across this scene.
The photos are nothing special but the subject was fun, and no, magpies can't really open taps but it sure looked good.

GREAT shots! These birds make good stew!

Country French Magpie Stew
Ingredients
1/2 cup dry navy beans or one 15-ounce can white beans,* rinsed and drained
4 cups water
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds boneless breast of magpie, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
3 cloves garlic, minced
2/3 cup dry red wine
1 14-ounce can beef broth
1 cup chopped tomato
2 teaspoons dried thyme, crushed, or 2 tablespoons snipped fresh thyme
4 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices
2 medium parsnips, cut into 1/2-inch slices
Snipped fresh parsley (optional)

Directions
1. If using dry beans, rinse beans. In a large saucepan combine drained beans and the 4 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. (Or, place beans in water in pan. Cover and let soak in a cool place for 6 to 8 hours or overnight.) Drain and rinse beans.
2. Place flour and pepper in a plastic bag. Add magpie pieces, a few at a time, shaking to coat. In a 4- or 6-quart Dutch oven brown half of the beef in 1 tablespoon of the hot oil; remove beef. Add remaining oil, remaining magpie, onion, and garlic to Dutch oven. Cook until magpie is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat, if necessary. Stir in wine, scraping until the brown bits are dissolved. Return all magpie pieces to Dutch oven. Stir in beans, soup stock or broth, tomato, and dried thyme (if using). Bring to boiling; reduce heat.
3. Simmer, covered, for 1-1/2 hours. Add carrots and parsnips. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 25 to 30 minutes more or until magpie meat and vegetables are tender. Stir in fresh thyme (if using). If desired, garnish with parsley. Makes 6 servings.
*Note: If using canned beans, decrease soup stock or broth to 1 cup.
