A short drop, this magpie

A magpie
[burung murai]

The bird dropped, picked something and flew
not giving me
a chance to zoom
and snap
for more.

a rare visit
seen through kitchen window.


  1. cute, i can see your insect population dropping quickly, bring in more - they are free and efficient labour!!

  2. I've got two visiting my garden. They can certainly make a noise!

  3. We get several magpies around here and they are so noisy.

  4. What a treat! Too bad he didn't stay around for a couple of poses.

    Gembala Kerbau and crows are more common around here.. I have seen a couple of magpies hovering around. They are a bit quick, stay just for a short while and off they go. That particular magpie stayed just long enough for me to rush for the camera and snap. Just for a pose, not a single more... haha.

    They are so noisy ... but nice to hear especially early in the morning... A persistent wake up call!!

    Have a good weekend,

  6. Great shot Bangchik! You've got a steady hand to get that clear photo with only one try.

  7. I enjoy seeing magpies. Around here they clean up road kill.

    Magpies cleaning up road kill? Over here only crows will do that. Crows in fact will clean up almost anything....

    Garden girl, I guess I was a little bit lucky, snapping just in time.

  9. You are lucky to get that shot co close.

  10. > FJL..,
    I hid behind the window curtain. I just squeezed the camera lense through a gap to shoot. Otherwise I could not get even a snap. This bird will definitely fly away on slightest sound.
