This is the adorable moment a young inquisitive magpie searches for some human affection.
The video posted online showing an unusual interaction is quickly spreading. The video starts with the bird called Maggie standing in woodchips as a man places his hand out.
Maggie nibbles the man’s hand inquisitively before allowing him to turn her upside down and rub her belly. She hangs on to the man’s fingers as she relaxes under his soft touch.
Maggie wanders up to another man who gently plays with her by grabbing her by the foot and swinging her around.
Seemingly loving the attention, Maggie rolls on to her back as if to ask for more belly rubs.
