Default [pic] Australian Magpie

This young adolescent Magpie, perched on an iron gate, watched me for several minutes as I was stalking a couple of Eastern Rosellas in a neighbour’s paddock (without any success unfortunately). After the Rosellas took flight I wandered back down through the gate, the whole time this Magpie stood staring at me. I was able to get quite close so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph this common bird.

Olympus E620
Zuiko 70-300mm lens

Great capture of a very curious and intelligent bird.
