Magpie amaziness by phalalcrocorax Magpie amaziness by phalalcrocorax
Hi all

Her is an old picture I did a long time ago... but I was unable to make a better shot of this behaviour :) They do this when another magpie enter their territory... and she is not invited :D

Thanks for watching

I can picture her doing their typical "SRJ!" (or something like that) with that pose xD There are a lot of magpies in my neighbourhood (next to a small forest).

I really like magpies, too bad we don't have any where I live in So Cal (got the yellow-billed in Central CA, and way north the black-billed starts). They're quite lovely. I always thing they're wearing a nice little pair of black bloomers :D

Great pic. Have seen the mockingbirds do this too. The wings sort of stutter their way to being spread and they do it over and over again. Especially when investigating something new. Wonder what that's about?

Thanks for your comment :)

I din't know that the mockingbirds do that. But to be fair, I didn't see any of them as we don't have such species here :)

I really think that it is because they feel stressed by something that disturb them. ;) But perhaps I am all wrong :)

8D Why yes, l'il Birdie, I WILL hug you!

That's just adorable. Small things are cute when they think they're so ferocious.

Love Magpies, they're very pretty, but they make a lot of noise.

So true about that, they make lot of noise :)

But if you listen carefully, you will be able to hear them singing... and I can swear their song is just so great to hear ;)

Hey no problem! I always like it more when people comment on my stuff rather than faveorite it and run off, I'd rather hear why they like the piece.

Hard to believe those little wings can fly but they do.

Hi Nailsin !!! It has been a while since I last read you ?

How are you ?

They are just great birds... and they have the tail to help them when they fly :D

By the way, I already saw a magpie flying perfectly even if she had lost all her tail feathers :D So... that is difficult to explain how they can fly so easily :)

Birds have amazed humanity for eons
and will continue to do so for eons
more to come.
They just make conquering gravity
look so easy.
