Magpie Fly

I keep my Familiar Birds of the Northwest book on my desk beside my front window. I dog-ear the pages that have the birds I’ve caught glimpses of. But we have a killer cat and a bird dog, so the birds mostly stay at bay. Occasionally I’m privy to a hover here, a fly by there and since my new love, the Rebel, has entered my life, I’m capturing them within my lens.

I caught this Magpie at the bird sanctuary that is my husband’s parents back-forty in Walla Walla, WA. I could stand on their deck all day long with my lens pointed toward the pond. Today, I caught a Great Blue Heron, an American Robin, Canadian Geese, Swan, a Mourning Dove, Mountain Quail, Mallard Ducks and many more that were too small and fast to identify.

(This shot is for Sheri because she doesn’t have a magpie on her life list (birds) and this list often helps resurrect my day.)
