Magpies using a live elk feeder

30 to 40 mile an hour wind with stronger wind gusts. I was stuck on the windy side of some rocks and bushes and couldn't find anyplace out of the wind so I tried to get a few keepers. The only reason I kept these was to let some of you see Mother Nature at work. I have seen other birds (small birds) eating off of Elk but this is the first time I saw Magpies.





After I tried a few photos I went back to the Camera Wagon and even tried a few from inside and the wind even had the camera wagon moving around.

There's nothing like spring in the mountains in NM for high winds. Do you think these Magpies are picking ticks off the elk or getting something else? I'd believe almost anything about Magpies!

Nice shots Roger, looks like your Elk are going to be tick free fairly soon.

Tick free elk sounds like a good idea to me. Thanks for looking and commenting.
