Forgive me for coming late to this thread. I don't know whether
someone has mentioned this or not, but there's a reference to eating
magpies in Athenaeus, Vol. II, p. 107.
The passage is listing many birds served at a feast and says:
"…ducks, ringdoves, geese, snipe, thrushes, larks, magpies, swans,
pelican, wagtails, crane…" >>
Strange. My edition of Athenaeus (ed. Gulick)
reads: "... ducks, pigeons, geese, sparrows, thrushes, larks,
jays, swans, pelican, wagtails, crane---".
It is in volume II, page 107. My edition is "1928, repr. 1987".
"jays" instead of "magpies". That's not the same kind of bird?
