  1. Looks quite a bit like the species we have here, but ours has a little more white and the tail seems a little longer. They are very pretty birds but I don’t like their nest-raiding habits.

  2. They are handsome birds, no question about that.

    Speaking of birds, I may have found a solution that would help you photograph your birds’ nests. Check this out. I could hardly believe it at first, but it was a real thing.

    1. What a fascinating story (in the link), Linda. I’m amazed that a pigeon could carry such a heavy thing as a camera. Love the street scenes the birds took. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks for the link, Peggy. She’s an amazing Magpie Whisperer that’s for sure. Can’t believe how close the relationship she’s formed with them. I’ve always been told to be wary of them them (and crows). I certainly felt that strong bond to the Spotted Turtle-doves in my previous apartment balcony. There were always different feather patterns which I could discern and definitely different personalities.

  3. Our old friends, the magpies. I believe that if they take up residence near you, they learn to recognise you, and you have no need to fear them. We have two who visit our garden and they’re quite friendly. I would say we’d have no difficulty in taming them if we wamted to. I do love their song.
