This is stunning, Rob! I would print this and hang it on my wall if I were you. :-)

Thank you Melissa

Great shot of that neat looking magpie, Richard. I noticed that he's not in a poop free zone.  :p

From wikipedia

"There are two species of passerine birds commonly called chough (/tʃʌf/ CHUF) that constitute the genus Pyrrhocorax of the Corvidae (crow) family of birds. These are the red-billed chough (Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax), and the Alpine chough (or yellow-billed chough) (Pyrrhocorax graculus). The white-winged chough of Australia, despite its name, is not a true chough but rather a member of the family Corcoracidae and only distantly related."

We have red-billed chough relatively local to me but yellow-billed are southern European/Asian birds. I've never got any decent shots of chough so I'm going to have to remedy that sometime soon! :)

Interesting, Sid. As far as the pronunciation of the word chough; do you pronounce it so that it sounds like "chow?" I'm kinda curious.

It's chuf as in rough or tough or slough. Or that's how it is here at any rate! :)

Thank you Sid. I didn't think that the pronunciation of chough would vary so much in different parts of the world..definitely interesting.
