Either that or fighting Monica - one has his leg up! Thanks:))Thanks Lorna - ours are at times too, especially at nesting time when they swoop!!
Great photo Rob. I concede they are beautiful looking birds, but they are also a pest in more ways than one!
Looks like their dancing! Great pic Rob, thanks! :))))
Thanks chookie, Ank & Gene - pleased that you liked them.I'm liking the look of your Magpies Amazonia - ours are just black & white, and have a completely different head shape! Thanks for the info :))
Course, us geordies have a penchant for the magpie! Lol. ; )
You can't really tell the sex of uk magpies by their plumage as they're identical - male might be slightly bigger - the females are often the bossy ones! Lol. I have lots of them where I live, they come into the garden with the Jackdaws. Always in their "Sunday Best" with their funny strut/hop gait! the iridescent feathers are beautiful, blue with green/purple tones. They can make a din when being vocal! ; )
I can hear them yelling all the way here LOL
I think she's just telling him who's the boss!!!
A very neat moment captured - quite the stance! :)
Yes - they're interesting aren't they? So different from any I've seen chickie.LOL!! Thanks Trish :)))
looks like a couple of dudes out to impress the ladies, no holds barred. their ladies would never be so daringly dressed; they get more demure and muted tones. thanks robryan for never failing to impress!
Wow! I didn't know magpies had blue on them. They are beautiful!
I have no idea of the gender of them loveydear - the UK Magpies are totally different from ours here in OZ!LOL!! He may be too PamCal - who knows :))
A lot I know about birds! I thought he was trying to "court' her.
I'm sure you'll tell me it's two male birds instead of a male and female though.
LOL!! Or they're having a domestic loveydear!! There's that foot up to the chest of the other bird!!One's definitely not too happy lyndee!
Fabulous photo! Thank you!
And it looks like she doesn't want to learn!
How wonderful, looks like he's trying to teach her a dance move!
