Another contortionist, must fill up the nut holder. Interactions galore but help needed, see comments.

Species with which Black-billed Magpie (Pica pica) interacts

We're... talking interactions on iSpot. So, this poor guy/gal has been bombarded by the blackbirds with tail feathers aloft (male/female - that's the Blackbirds) every time at this food station. Then 2 magpies at a time arrive so as to protect themselves , warded off the Blackies (to a certain extent), and hadn't counted on the bombardment of the Crow. Amazing shinanigans (might be the right spelling), the other birds don't seem to trust the Magpies. So, I suggest an interaction between Magpie, Blackbird and Crow - and probably every other bird going.

How do I do this?
