The magpie is a bird that has a bad reputation. People generally dislike the magpie because of their habits, such as eating other birds' eggs, their harsh-sounding call, or munching on roadkill - not exactly charming behavior.
Fortunately for a magpie named Penguin, the Bloom family did not hold this bird's reputation against him. Young Noah Bloom found the poor injured magpie on his way home from the library. The family contacted a veterinarian and decided to nurse him back to health.
Now, Penguin is fully rehabilitated and part of the Bloom family. Cameron Bloom, a professional photographer, has chronicled their adventure. Check out the photos below.
