Les pies bavardes...

Magpie - Urraca
Pica pica, Corvidae
Spain, 2017/12
Nikon: D500 et D750 + 200/500 mm

Actions et attitudes des animaux, spécialement celles des oiseaux, sont passionnantes et toujours un grand plaisir à saisir sur le vif!

Animal postures specially those of birds, are fascinating and always a great pleasure to seize in the heat of the action!

Cette jeune se promenait la queue relevée, surtout quand le vent lui soufflait dans le derrière!!...
This young one always walked around with  its tail vertical especially in rear wind...

Quand on a la chance que ces superbes oiseaux se présentent dans une belle lumière, on peut alors capter les magnifiques reflets irisés des plumes noires:

It is always a must when the light shines fully on the black feathers revealing their gorgeous shiny iridescence:

Contrairement au Crave à bec rouge et au Grand corbeau, la pie boit sans pencher la tête en biais:

Unlike the Chough or the Raven, the magpie drinks without bending the head sideways:

L'une d'elle décide de prendre un bain:

  6. Dearest Noushka,
    LOVE that young one with its positive tail up!

    Hugs and wishing you a Happy New Year in good health.

  7. That is a beautiful Magpie, stunning Noushka.

  8. Hi Noushka,
    Another set of super images of the dear Magpie, caught in the correct light and you get the iridescence, they look so similar to the Glossy Starlings we saw in Africa.
    All the best for 2018. John

  9. Gracias, amiga, por acercarnos a la belleza de los pajaros con tus imagenes
    Te deseo un feliz año

  10. Hi Noushka,
    Magpies are regular visitors in our garden. I have never succeeded in making such a great pictures of them like you did. Maybe I have to try harder "LOL". Like you show us here the bird is worth it to be photographed, despite of his bad reputation.

    I wish you a pleasant changing of the year and lots of luck in 2018. Have a good time in nature!
    Greetings, Kees

  11. Hi Noushka.

    Beautiful Noushka.

    Many thanks for all your beautiful things this past year.
    I enjoyed it.

    Groettie from Patricia.

  12. Excellent pictures my friend.. Great!!!
    Happy New Year .. Best wishes for 2018..
    See youuuu

  13. Beautiful pictures, and especially with my tail up, captivated me. I wish you a happy 2018.

  14. Rarement mises à l'honneur et tu l'as fait avec brio.
    Etrange, certains commentaires se valident et d'autres attendent ton approbation.
    Allons bon ;-)

  15. I love the crow family, Noushka! Love the cockiness of young males as they strut about! You have so much knowledge about birds. What are you going to do with all these amazing photos? I hope you donate them to a university or scientific organization. It would be criminal if this body of work were lost!
