Magpie (Pica pica).

An inquisitive Magpie (Pica pica) perched quietly very close to where my car was parked recently and obliged me with a few images.

 Yeah ... I'm keeping an eye on you as well!

I wonder what the others are up to?


  1. a little different to the local type here Frank, and yours seems so pristine; great pics!

  2. Beautiful images of the Magpie.

  3. Hi Frank
    Yes good to be back and thanks for the comments.
    What a cracking set of magpie images
    Nice one

  4. Hi Frank
    Many thanks for the comments,.What a cracking set of Magpie shots.Nice one

  5. The neighborhood magpies here are nowhere near as accomodating as this one! They are very suspicious of cameras even from a distance.

  6. A very photogenic bird, the Magpie, a shame he gets such a bad press!

  7. Beautiful shots Frank... I've not be taking any pictures of this bird for a while now, and I might try it again this summer ;-)

  8. We used to see magpies in Eastern Washington and Eastern Oregon (not the part where we lived)...they were pretty similar to yours. Beautiful birds, but raucous -- worse than crows even.


I hope you enjoyed your visit and I always appreciate your comments and feedback.
