The lone magpie possesses dark and mysterious powers. If seen, salute it as a mark of respect.
Other barriers against their bad luck include greeting it with “Good morning mister magpie,” or “Good morning Sir.”
Upon seeing a group of magpies, remind yourself of their prediction with this rhyme:
One for sorrow,Two for joy,Three for a girl,Four for a boy,Five for silver,Six for gold,Seven for a secret never to be told.
My mum taught me this one, but there are may other versions. All of them, however, agree that one magpie brings nothing but bad tidings.

    Humans see groups of magpies. Magpies don’t. Magpies know they stand alone. … There is only ever one for sorrow.
