gorgeous birds! we don't have them here in this part of texas.
Very nice shots of the magpie! I've never seen one in person.
Thank you Bethany.
Hi Bob, beautiful shots of the Magpie. The last two are my favorites, well done! Happy weekend!
PS, Thank you for linking up and sharing your critter post.. Have a happy weekend!
WOW! Bob, these are great close up shots of the Magpie. Have a wonderful weekend.
Cheers Margaret, and have a lovely weekend.
Beautiful photos of a very handsome bird. Enjoy your weekend.
you know so well how to photograph birds ! it's always amazing
They remind me of my Java Rice finches. Well...if the black was grey and the beaks were orange...okay they don't look anything alike...but I like them.
Quite different to our magpies. And the US magpies. A sad lack of originality on the naming front...I love seeing yours. Are they also cheeky charmers?
your shots are fabulous Bob
They really are nice looking birds, garden rascals.
Hola Bob,imagenes de lujo de este bello corvido.Un saludo y feliz domingo
A pair live in our garden. Beautiful photos!
A pair, lovely for them, cheers Dawn.
We rarely see magpies in NZ. When I was living in Australia, however, they were as common as muck ... in a nice way!
The Common Asmuck, beautiful bird.
Unbelievably sharp photos. very well done!
Sorry I can't get in yours.
Wow!Its so clean!!Has it just had a bath??Very very sharp and good shoot))
Have ever seen a Magpie take a bath? cCheers Anita.
What a beauty. I love how every little downy feather shows on its face.
A fluffy one indeed, thanks Hilary.
Bob, what a beautiful bird! I love the sharp crisp lines and shiny beak! Well taken!!
Ah la belle "margot" ! Ca fait plaisir à voir, ici au Canada, il y en a en Colombie-Britannique seulement (paraît-il).
What a brilliant series!! Love the glow on her head.Wish you a Very Happy New Year Bob.xo, isabella

great photos, magpies are so handsome
I thought so, the Magpie is so clever, thanks.
Nous avons régulièrement la visite de deux couples de pies qui viennent se nourrir dans notre jardin, à quelques mètres de nous. Je retrouve leur beauté et leurs attitudes dans tes merveilleuses photo. Je t’offre tous mes vœux pour 2015 et je te souhaite le meilleur de la vie pour toi, tes proches et tes amis des oiseaux dont tu es pour moi, le roi.Amitiés.Roger
Beautiful series of images of this magpie.The first one is my favorite.All perfectly photographed, Bob.
Cheers Irma for saying nice things.
What a handsome fella, and the black and white is truly striking.Have a wonderful week ahead, Bob!
And you Lisa.
Probably one of Britain's most maligned birds, but truly a handsome species. I will be in the UK in July and can hardly wait to see them again.
It has a nice pen, and I like the birds. :)
Beautiful shots, Bob :)
What a close-up!
Maria, thanks to you.
