Blackie and his hundreds of fellow travelers are flocking through Comox bay here on their way south. They are a saucy and spirited gang with group bravado.

A wonderful capture Tony, I love the iridescent colourings on his rather proud looking puffed up chest.

Regards Nathan

Thanks for comments and clicks. Ann, you lament about pidgeons and magpies. The former are a little dim, I grant you,...but magpies? Never lived near magpies but did see some in Kamloops B.C. I was impressed. Interesting and active. Do I have more to learn? TG
