Unpopular Garden Visitor

By teocali
The Eurasian Magpie (LatinTongueica pica) - not the most welcome garden visitor as they are very predatory during the songbird nesting season. They, along with the grey squirrel, also do a good job stealing food and destroying feeding stationsSad This is a full frame (uncropped) capture.

Thank you all so much for your C&Cs for my last upload, with special thanks for their much-appreciated UAs to: Janet(Chase), Feed(Badgerfred), Dave(DaveRyder), Bob(bobpaige1), Alf(Alffoto), Len(Len1950), Mike(Mike_Smith), Keith(dark_lord), David(chalkhillblue), Arne(Saastad) and Sandy(Daisymaye) - I am very grateful for your supportSmile

They can be a little bit noisy, but I think they are very beautiful birds!
Lovely shot!
