    Mr. McPie

    Hi.

    More than once I've seen people greeting a bird and calling it Mr. McPie. Is this something customary in the UK? I find it odd.

    No, but you might hear us saying 'Good morning, Mr Magpie'.

    I never imagined one bird could have so many names. And those stories people made up about it! Some people just have way too much time on their hands.

    NamelessKing, I see you have posted the same thread here.

    Please do not post the same question simultaneously to more than one forum. Doing so wastes our valuable time. Instead, post your question to one forum and wait for replies. If you're not satisfied with those replies, you can try another forum, but please indicate in your thread that you've already asked the same question elsewhere (provide a link), and outline why you were not satisfied with the answers you received already.
