Seeing a magpie in the early morning is a sign of something good coming your way. Birds are understood to be messengers between this world and the spirit world.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
