They're not parrots!

Still... it's interesting!

Why Do Elk Tolerate Magpies?

There are also cleaner fish and cleaner shrimp. Apparently there's some unwritten code that even highly carnivorous fish won't eat a cleaner fish or shrimp. That always fascinated me - why they don't eat the cleaners.

Those magpies are CUTE! You need to raid a nest and send me a baby!

Oxpeckers. . .
that's a funny name.

Actually they're not that cute. They're like the pigeons of the mountains - they're into everything. In Rocky Mountain National Park, they're all over the campgrounds and popular picnic sites scavenging everything they can find. You have to run them off like pigeons at Disneyland and Sea World, but they're bigger and have a crow-ish look to them.

They're a bit annoying actually. Did I already say that?

Sounds like seagulls at the beach. Love watching the seagulls scope out the tourists. As soon as tourists leave their snacks the gulls are tearing into it. Almost seem like the gulls know who's local and who are good victims. I guess locals cover their food more effectively.

They are pretty looking birds but are not very nice birds. Besides being scavengers they are also well known for bullying other birds and stealing eggs.
