I know sometimes these birds get a hard press but I think they are a lovely looking bird Bob as is seen from your shots.
magpies are Nature's way of saying wow. I can mix things up.
Preciosa urraca, un ave a la que aprecio mucho pues, siendo niño, críe una que convivía perfectamente con las personas y se hizo amiga de mi perro al que acompañaba a todas partes subida en su lomo. Me parecía tan inteligente que, incluso, en ocasiones parecía que quisiera hablar.Un abrazo,
Lieber Bob, auch wenn man die Elster als Nesträuber verpönt,so mag ich sie doch sehr. Ein herrliches Gefieder und klugeAugen. Wieder wunderschöne Fotos.Einen schönen Resttag wünscht dirIrmi
HI Bob! Stylish guy. Stunning pictures.
Wonderful magpie shots---- There are LOTS of magpies on the east side of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State.
Very very nice BobMagpie've actually captured magnificent.Not easy to black and white.
Hi Bob, the magpie is a handsome bird. Great shots. Have a happy day!
de er så vakkert men ille frekk :-) beautifull bird but angry :-)
Hola Bob,una bella entrada de la Urraca,el corvido mas numeroso de Europa.Un saludo.
Superbe. J'aime beaucoup les pies. On les dit voleuses, moi, je les trouve plutôt, intelligentes. Leurs nids sont des merveilles de construction, résistant aux plus grosse tempêtes. Merci pour ce beau partage, cher Bob. Bon week-end à toi. Amitiés.Roger
Quando venho aqui, me encanto. Passeio pelas fotos que ainda não tinha visto e me deslumbro com sua arte. É belíssimo seu trabalho.
Hi Bob. There are magpies are slightly different than here in Finland.
I didn't know that, thanks Sami.
Bonita urraca, Bob, me gusta el contraste de color que tiene en su plumaje. Buenos disparos.Saludos.
Your magpies are different to ours. Only the colours remain the same.
Dressed in a Tuxedo.
Bob, Aha, a very mysterious soul with his black hood!
Beautiful shots and our Magpies are very different.
I've never been too keen on magpie's ... but these are such beautiful photo's. Thank you.All the best Jan
We used to see magpies often when we were growing up in Eastern Washington State. And then we didn't see them at all until we traveled to Alaska. The ones there were almost as handsome as yours is!

Sing me a song, Miss Magpie.
Always a beauty whether in B&W or in color. :)Great captures.
They are so beautiful, aren't they? People don't like them very much here, but I don't know why!
Here is the same, they are beautiful, and they take others eggs, but, only natural.
