they used to divebomb & terrorize me as a kid, now they sit tamely on my mothers clothesline!!!! (thus this rare bird shot from me)

Crows & Ravens are my favourite birds, but the Magpie is related to them

He looks similar to our magpies, which are actually quite tame. Even the wild ones. :)

I got attacked a few weeks ago out on a walk. I only realised after I heard their wings right next to my head as they come from behind the little b#$tards.

Aussie Magpies are pretty easy to tame as well. Just provide food regularly and they'll come to trust you.


Currently just a P&S, but watch this space.

That's Australian & quite alright by my standards ;) It's the imported Indian Mynahs that irritates me

not ugly at all and well shot for a bird without much color going for him. Me I like the corvid race Magpies for me are in the American west. I stalk crow and Jay. Very wary subjects and a prize if I can do well getting one in the lens as I like.
