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.

Now that's interesting - looks like the elk don't mind the birds using them for a perch at all! Thanks for posting them.

Hi to YA!!! mtngal, I thought it was pretty different. I have seen small birds on elk but never Magpies. Thanks for looking and commenting.
