I have a few magpies that land outside my window every day, one scared the shit out of me by beaking the window a couple of times. I keep trying to open my window to feed them, but they fly off when I open the window, any advice for trying to get them to get used to me/opening windows?

Leave some seed or food outside the window sill, preferably something that won't destroy their intestines. Their corvids, so they're pretty smart and will eventually associate you opening your window with food. If you're fortunate, they'll bring you gifts. A friend of mine feed a couple of crows cherry seeds outside her apartment. If you're lucky, they'll bring you stolen rings or something shiny. If you're unlucky like my friend, they'll bring you mice skulls. It's the thought that counts though.

My old lutino ringneck, Banana. This is old picture around 10 years ago. Grew up with her, she’s still alive and just as psychotic. My wife still can’t handle her and gets jealous when I play/handle her. I posted this in the pets thread, shoulda done some digging for this one instead!

So a family of doves live up in my covered patio, just a few days ago they kicked this little guy out because mama laid more eggs, and he ended up breaking his wing from the fall. I got him set up in my large parakeet cage right now, hopefully he heals up enough to release soon.

I'm amazed at how he is unfazed by me handling him.
