There are so many fabulous photos posted on this site of such beautiful and exotic birds framed in eye catching poses. Way out of my league! So, in my pursuit of the mundane, here is a 'common as muck,' working class magpie. It is one of several which have taken up residence in our yard to free load off our grubs and other crawlies and hang around the back door, ever hopeful of a hand out.
Thanks for viewing and any feed back comments.
Gymnorhina tibicen., aka black backed magpie, but to us common folk known simply as a "maggie."
