    In the pink

    I don't often take photos of Magpies. Not that they aren't beautiful, but I'm mostly holding out for the perfect pose and light showing their iridescence. But the pink background caught me here.
  4. Christmas present

    Christmas present

    Christmas eve found us back at the Mause feeders. Couldn't believe my eyes when this Eurasian Magpie called in for his dinner! It had been nearly a year since we'd caught sight of one there (back in February!). What a lovely Christmas present eh! They're still such a rarity here.

    Video: Magpie Bird Preens a Muntjac Deer at RSPB Rye Meads, Hertforshire, UK 05th June 2023

    Eurasian magpie preens a male Muntjac deer at RSPB Rye Meads, Hertfordshire, UK, 05th June 2023 (Preening starts @00:28). Magpies and deer sometimes display a symbiotic relationship where the deer will tolerate the magpie on its back in return for the magpie removing ectoparasites such as fleas...

    Strange Magpie sound, 7 Mar, Central Poland

    I believe these sounds were repeated over and over by at least one Magpie perched on a treetop. I'd never heard it before and wonder what they could be or what function they could serve. A subsong would be my best bet, but isn't it too loud for a subsong, and shouldn't a subsong be more varied...

  15. Christmas treats 3

    Christmas treats 3

    I used to be a bit frustrated that the magpies would manage to untie the Xmas treats and fly away with them. This year they didn't do that. Also this year I hung up enough "cookies" that a magpie or two could be enjoying cookies and there would still be others available for the smaller birds.

    Common Magpie subspecies

    OK, I've been a little bit torn between posting it here, in Bird Identification Q&A and in Bird Taxonomy and Nomenclature. While browsing through photos of Common Magpies in the Macaulay Library, I noticed an interesting feature: the white cross stripe above the rump varies in thickness between...

    Escaped

    Back in August, a cousin and her husband visited Scotland and we arranged to meet up at Loch Leven RSPB reserve, as it was about half-way between us. It was good to catch up with them after many years. This reserve used to be called Vane Farm. We had lunch there then a wander round the reserve...
