Just when I thought I must know every species there is you pull this one out of the hat,so to speak ;)
What a spectacular looking Magpie,so very different to our monotone ones.
Yours are shy,but ours will attack people without fear!
I also like your picture of your village.
It is on such a steep hillside.I think I would always be worried about landslides if I lived there!
Thanks for showing us these wonders from your part of the world.

Your Magpie is for me very exotic. It have beautiful and colourful plumage. I'm curious if this bird have the same habits as this which live in my country. I've posted also Magpie from my countryside.

A wonderful posting, both of this yellow-billed Magpie and to show us what a wonderful area to have your family roots.
The magpie is taken from a fine lateral POV with excellent sharpness and lighting that show its features, including the striking yellow bill and the fine blue feathers of its wings. It is well seen among the branches of this apple tree.
Thanks for sharing this,
All the best,

Dear Ram Sir,
You got this "Yellow-billed Blue Magpie" in the most magnificent way it should be framed. I had been trying to get it in Himalayas but my all efforts were in vain. Superb shot with excellent details & sharpness. Very many thanks for sharing this beauty. They call me back in the high mountains……… :)

Thank you indeed for this beautiful reproduction of a colorful Magpie in its environment, much different and more colourful from our black and white magpies, and also for the detailed notes my friend, much appreciated.

Hello Ram !
Wow, you have wonderful visitors in your apple trees - I wish we had the same in France ! :-) And then there is this WS picture, absolutely breathtaking, I would DREAM to live in such a place ! Coming back to your Magpie, I must admit she is much more colorful and beautiful than our Franch magpies (but in France they are not so shy.) Thank you for sharing these two wonderful posts.
Warm greetingsd from France,

The blue colourings on the bird drew me in even though it was line up and last...I love it Ram...My book on wilderness living is almost complete..I invite you to look at form for its location and see what you think..and add that part..as a part of my request that you keep on with your most well taught words.

excellent shot of the bird in its graphical surroundings.
Lovely colours and pleasant composition.
The lines on the feathers of the wing is so beautiful and clear.
Really a well captured shot.

Now this is indeed of interest ..a bird so beautiful to look at.I think after seeing Treepies, one would certainly admire these birds for the lovely and rich blue colour they sport.
The impressive characteristic tail is very well there.I guess they keep fidgeting and moving from one point to the other making it difficult to photograph.But you show this fine specimen in good sharpness and clarity.I like the cute little tuft of hair on the plumage that is blowing in the wind or has risen up as a result of its own motion.Despite the branches that are spread across the frame,the bird stands out in detail.The vertical composition fits very well here.
Thanks for sharing (this new bird to me) Cheers
