  1. 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.

  3. 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,

    so mag ich sie doch sehr. Ein herrliches Gefieder und kluge
    Augen. Wieder wunderschöne Fotos.
    Einen schönen Resttag wünscht dir
    Irmi

  11. 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.

  19. 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!
