A Photo A Day(ish).

Alas I dropped the ball for a couple of days this week, but here are today's piccies.


Local magpie. Local magpie.
S/he sings to me regularly, especially at this time of year. I don't feed it often, but it does understand the concept and comes straight down when I whistle and put something on the front gate post.

I rather like this one. It's contemplating lunch.




Eating lunch:

A more classic pose.

It's a she.

Mature males have pure white back feathers and this one has the dappled grey/white back feathers of Mrs Magpie.

She's probably around more frequently at this time of year because she'll have a nest of squawking babies to feed somewhere. I'm surprised she hasn't brought Mr Magpie to meet you, because normally magpie parents work in close concert.

The grand-daughter of the initial pair of magpies we started feeding at work has this year brought home her young man and whilst he is a bit shy, she's a cheeky bitch who will snatch the food out of your hand if you don't watch her.

Thankyou.

I thinkn this is the offspring of two others who were around for a few years. (At least, there were two, then three, now there's this one.) So I hope she meets a nice fella then.
