Cheeky Magpie by Somebody-Somewhere Cheeky Magpie by Somebody-Somewhere
This is one of the magpies that visit our garden on a daily basis, but only one of 2 that was brave enough to venture into the garden when I was out with my camera.

I love this shot, and think that even the mushrooms add to it, but opinions and comments are always welcome! :)

I'm from Australia and our magpies look very different!

Oh wow! That's really cool!

None of ours do that... though they have been known to occasionally tap on the window if their favourite food has run out :)

Thank you!

I have to agree! The majority of the time I think they have a look of both friendliness and curiousity :)

Heehee :)

I do like magpies - we have up to 7 that visit the garden on a regular basis! Each has their own personality too :)

Glad you like him! :D
