Pie

Magpie Versailles pie
VDP remembers magpies from her childhood but it seems we have more and more of them, far more than when she was a kid!

VDP se souvient des pies de son enfance mais il semblerait que nous en ayons de plus en plus !

Seem to adapt very well to urban environments from what I have observed.

What a beauty! I don't know if they're in this area.

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Same here, more and more. Aren't they attracted to shiny objects or is that an old wives tale? Taxi picture tomorrow...

Lowell said...

Well, you are lucky. This is a beauty, and so far as I know, there aren't any in this part of Florida.

Randy said...

We have an area about an hour north of Santa Fe where you can see them. They never travel this far south.

You car confusing untraveled English speakers, but for a good reason.

Hope you saluted him?!

Perfect composition. It was as if he waited for you. (Hope you didn't stand under him for too long)!

Magpies freak me out a little, but our ones don't seem as pretty as yours

Birdman said...

Heard of them many times in literature, but this might be the first time I ever have seen one closeup. Ever.

Sharon Anck said...

Such a pretty bird!

I was thinking more like apple or cherry :-)

Small City Scenes said...

They're all over EW but won't hold still long enough for me to get a good pic.

I don't know why, but it is the same here, there are so many...

Tahiti Daily Photo said...

Les jolis bourgeons sont pas mal non plus ...

RedPat said...

There are none here. Great pic, Ciel!

Jack said...

Magpies. I know the name but don't have any experience with these birds.

Lois said...

This is one bird I have never seen in person! I would love it if we had them here.
