Default Window of Opportunity

It's a balmy spring afternoon. I am sitting in my car by the river enjoying the music on ABC FM - Magpies are musical too.


E-PL3 + SWD 12-60mm (= 24-120mm) (Uncropped) Steering wheel used as camera rest. Seeing no food he didn't stay long.

Hi Mark, nice one, maybe I will try playing music the next time I'm in Europe, I still need a good photo of this guy's cousin LOL
I had to get my dictionary out I don't recall hearing the word "Balmy" before. A Wallaby Aussie teaching a Pommy his language deserves a special K. Good on ya mate LOL

Thanks John. Magpies here are one of the less timid birds, they allow you to get quite close, especially if you happen to be eating something which they think you might share.

Good luck Luckyjon on your next visit to Europe!

Thanks guys. I returned to the scene this morning to try for a Superb Blue Fairy Wren which were being flirtatious (with each other) yesterday.

Below are from the shoe box

Magpies are very wary here, John. They wouldn't approach you like that even if you were playing music...
