Log in to Reply He does not know that this type of crows exists. By the way, she is beautiful. 1 Log in to Reply The Magpie is a unique bird it is not a crow…but it likes to pick up shiny or unusual objects. Log in to Reply To tell you the truth Pamela, I do not think I have ever seen a magpie. We have a lot of crows here in Canada and ravens but magpies… I am not sure. I know that they are in the crow family but that is all I know. Crows are noisy enough so if we had magpies here on top of crows I think I would be going mad with all their noisy talk… This magpie in the picture is magnificent and regal looking even though he might have been eyeing you with some mistrust. I guess the saying “strength in numbers” applies here if he or she felt better having his or her mate not far away… 1 Log in to Reply I did not know that the Magpie was from the crow family, we don’t have crows or ravens in New Zealand. The Magpie can be noisy. 1 Log in to Reply Great picture and I am not a fan of magpies lol. I tried with all my might one year not to let them nest is a tree right next to my bedroom window. I found that everyone in the family and neighborhood enjoyed watching me fight a battle I couldn’t win. They are very loud birds! 1 Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
