Magpie








Skata (Pica pica) - magpie

This young magpie was jumping around under 
the chairs at the outdoor café in the Botanic garden
looking for something delicious to eat.

  7. Beautiful pictures of the Magpie, this bird is difficult to photograph, they are very shy.
    You have them photographed perfectly.

  9. Fina bilder på den lilla skatungen! Jag gillar också att studera dem, tycker de är så fina (trots att de är tjuvaktiga)

    Tack så mycket för krya-på-dig-hälsningen, sånt värmer!

  10. Nice variety of poses of this magpie. Ours in US have longer tails-- or did this one lose it?

    1. Thanks Ken! This was a young bird. It didn't fly, it only jumped around. I'm guessing the tail feathers hadn't grown out yet.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
