The feast


The afternoon silence suddenly was broken yesterday by croaking of a flock of magpies, which appear from nowhere and while they were feasting themselves with pears. The pear tree is in my neighbour's garden across my home. This photo I took from my terrace which is rather far from the pear tree but the photo is not too bad.

Very Different from the Magpies we have over here, I love to see a close up of one.

I counted 16 in this photo - we once had a flock of a dozen in a local tree - http://geraldengland.co.uk/nat/ni002.htm but they weren't feeding.
