The resident Magpies enjoying a rest on one of the parrot perches! They are so tame, a week or so ago one was on the kitchen table when I entered the room, I stood still so as not to disturb it … it just walked out of the door :-)

This is mother (I think) with her juvenile.

Canon EOS 50D
Canon 100-400 mm lens
f/7.1, 1/400 sec, ISO 400, F/L 400mm.

Thank you as always for giving your time in looking.

    lovely shot Tai, great poses and dof,are’nt they such great characters !my mum has a family that regularly visits indoors too mind you she also encourages them with tasty cheese which they have a liking for then she holds her breath while they make their way around the china lol ! xx

  • Thanks Trudi! Your mum sounds as daft as I am! I feed them all the left over fruit from the parrots who don’t eat it all prefering to have contests of who can fling it the furthest! The maggies also like Harry’s small dog biscuits LOL!! xx
