    Default Yellow-billed Magpie

    Have renewed my interest in the YB Magpies we have here in N. Cal. Here's a favorite grab from an outing a couple weeks ago. TFL.

    That's an absolutely killer head turn! Doesn't get any better, especially given that it's a flight image. The near wing looks great, but the OOF far is starting to get lost against the blotchy background. It's much harder to get land birds on buttery backgrounds than it is waterbirds, so this is about as good as it going to get for this species. Well done.

    Ditto Dorian's comments here. The wing positions are a killer!

    Agree with the previous posts. The eye contact is right on the money!

    Yes, that head turn is just too perfect. My favorite part just may be the iridescence on the tail feathers!
