I think Magpies are one of the most under-rated birds we have - they are so gorgeous but people over here are still trying to trap them, they're not well liked at all!
Handsome birds indeed Bob.Love that last shot.
Sharon, it makes you want to lock them without the keys, um, I don't believe it, honest.Keith, the last photo is mine as well.
Wow yes, unfortunately i think that nature photographer don't pay enough attention to them, just as for the common species. But you did and you did extremely well, these are three splendid pictures! Just perfect!
Beautiful shots Bob, you really have got the hang of that new set up.
"What a handsome looking Magpie" and what a cracking set of shots they are too, Bob.
Chris, the trouble is they don't draw attention to the common birds. Brian, I think, thats it just a passing fad, ha ha ha.Dean, thank you for your comments.
Excellent captures of a beautiful and much maligned bird.
Like your Magpies. I always struggle (even more) with these because I can never manage to make their eyes stand out like you have.
