A Magpie in the garden

magpie in the gardenLast month, we returned home after a week away to find that a pair of Magpies had built their domed nest near our house, in one of the trees lining the street. This morning, I saw  one on the pavement, which was surprising as they are usually shy. In the afternoon, a Magpie exploring the garden was caught by the remote camera, and I based this sketch on the photo. The light was perfect to show the beautiful metallic shine of this bird.
