For most ‘food’ to eat. Magpies then turn to other resources such as dog litter, takeaway food, any dead animal or human leftovers, etc.

‘The magpie does not depend on songbirds or sparrows for its own survival, as the ‘sparrow’-hawk does but takes advantage of them when it can as magpies – ‘Kill.’
The magpie is a ‘Pest Species.’ – And “Is listed as such.” –
“Exempted from any sort of protection.” -
‘Therefore if you have observed a magpie problem in your neighbourhood; It is open to you to take action.’
In good natural habitat the numbers of small birds and sparrowhawks must maintain a balance otherwise the natural system would not persist.
The nature of the balance that is achieved depends on the quality of the habitat.
‘To avoid predation small birds need cover such as hedgerows, bramble, scrub and copses. These are continually under treat in modern landscapes.’
‘In London people have told me of the recent loss of suitable habitat in the parks, particularly Regents Park which has prevented small birds from avoiding their natural predators as well as they used to.’

‘Magpie’: Latin. Meaning – “An appetite for substances unfit as food. Eating anything.” Perfect reference – For killer magpies.
Magpies rarely ‘eat’ that which they KILL - Razor sharp beak Razor sharp claws – Weighing little.
MAGPIES: ‘ARE’ JUST A–KILLING MACHINE OF – ALL OF ‘OUR’ – ‘SONGBIRDS And Sparrows.’ This ‘IS’ - Britain ‘2000’…!
Predation ‘killing’ is tragically a major problem for Songbirds in Britain. Throughout the world. Predators such as crows, magpies, falcons, sparrow-hawks, grey-squirrel infestation – All hawks, cats, jays, herring-gulls, red-kites, owls, woodpeckers, rats, fox; Etc.
And – ‘Parakeets’ displace. ‘The list seems endless from photographic proof.’

Blackbirds 2001 – “Placed On Red List of UK – Threatened Endangered Species” –
Females creamy throat slightly streaked chest brown body who sing quietly.
Males deep black glossy plumage with striking yellow-gold bill and eye ring.
Singing on high like a welcome melodic ‘angel’ in your garden. Superb rich long
high and low phrases of fluting endlessly varied ‘kisses’ and whistles.
They mate for life. They – COULD – ‘Live’ 7+ years. If – “Given Help.”
Re Magpies and Sparrowhawks – ‘Killing!’
Help Blackbirds: Compost. Add old fruit vegtable garden waste to soil pile on ground.
They love to forage for slugs, worms, bugs, beetles, spiders, moths flies eating up ALL ‘our’-creepy crawlies. ‘That we dont want!’
“Cleaning our soil of all trash viruses.”
Need: Berries cherries leave windfall pears apples. Feed mealworms fatty meat chips sausage bacon chicken grapes. “ALL moist and well chopped.”
