Cheeky magpies eat dumplings left on porch in China

A group of cheeky magpies ate an entire tray of dumplings left outside on a porch in northeastern China.

Video taken in Harbin City, Heilongjiang province on November 27 shows the birds tearing open the tray’s plastic cover to feast on the treats. A woman is later seen checking on the dumplings, only to find a few food scraps left behind.

The video owner said the dumplings were made by her mother for her son-in-law. The magpies reportedly finished eating everything in about an hour.
