That is so great. The magpie is looking at the sky and you're looking at the sky and the magpie.

Australian Magpies are quite a bit bigger and noisier than those I remember from the UK. We have two who have called our house their territory.

You've gained 2 magpies as your pets I see :)

Very nicely done.

James Higham said...

Do you get a lot of magpies round your way then?

Colin Campbell said...

James They seem very territorial. There are quite a few in the trees over the road, but only ever two poking around and surveying our garden. Interesting and menacing birds. They are not much smaller than Spotty.

We have magpies in the Western U.S. too and they must all have the same disposition! Very interesting post and photo. Thanks for sharing.
