  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  13. We rarely see magpies in NZ. When I was living in Australia, however, they were as common as muck ... in a nice way!

  30. 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

  33. 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.
