This article is about the birds in the family Corvidae. For the Australasian bird in the family Artamidae, see Australian Magpie. For other uses, see Magpie (disambiguation).
Magpie


European Magpie
Scientific classification
Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Chordata

Class: Aves

Order: Passeriformes

Family: Corvidae


Genera
Pica
Urocissa
Cissa
Cyanopica

Magpies are passerine birds of the crow family, Corvidae. The names 'jay' and 'magpie' are to a certain extent interchangeable, although this does not accurately reflect the evolutionary relationship between these birds. For example, the Eurasian Magpie seems more closely related to the Eurasian Jay than to the Oriental Blue and Green Magpies, whereas the Blue Jay is not closely related to either.[
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Uzun kuyruklu, karın ve omuz tüyleri ile el uçma tüylerinin iç tarafları beyaz olan kuşlardır. Diğer vücut tüyleri siyah ve metalik parlaklık gösterir. Metalik yeşil olan kuyruk tüylerinin uçları parlak mavi, ayaklar ve gaga siyahtır. Boyları yaklaşık 46 cm. dir. Böcekler, kuş yumurtaları, solucanlar ve leşler ile beslenirler. Yerli kuşlardır. Doğuda yaşayanların bir kısmı gezicidir. 6-8 arası yumurta yumurtlarlar. Kuluçka süreleri 12 gündür. Yavrunun uçma süresi 16 gündür. Ötüşleri "şak-şak" şeklindedir. Ağaç, dal parçaları ve kökleri üst üste koyarak yaptıkları yuvalarının duvarlarını balçık kullanarak sağlamlaştırırlar. Yuvalarının üstünde bir şapkamsı bir yapı bulunur.

Hello Cahit,
This must be one of the most beautiful Magpie images I've ever seen! The open wing inflight pose is gorgeous and your photo executed with expertise. The POV is super to show the beauty of the birds plumage patterns. The irridecence eveident in the feathers is lovely. The composition and contrasting Bg are top notch also, Bravo! tfs Richard

Hello Cahit,
This fine in-flight capture of a Magpie shows fine panning and focusing skills. The POV and and wing position displays the wings and the colours in a most beautiful way.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Hi Cahit,

You show us that the magpie is a beautiful bird. Splendid colors in the feathers and a great timig in this inflight shot.

Nefis bir uçar-saksağan Cahit Bey, yüksek bakış açısı kanat üstlerini ve menevişli kuyruk teleklerini çok iyi ortaya koymuş. Hareket dondurulmuş, geri plan da flu olunca harika bir kompozisyon ortaya çıkmış, kutluyorum.

Zor bir kare olmasına rağmen mükemmel renkler ve detaylar , tebrik ederim .

Splendido volo di gazza, ottimi POV e DOF, eccellente composizione, molto belli i colori con i riflessi tipici della coda, molto bello anche lo sfondo. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Cahit, this is a very beautiful shot of this in-flight Magpie. You are right, they do look a lot different from the Australian Magpie, one I'm familiar with. Shooting at 1/750 has given you good stopped motion on this bird. I like how his wings and tail are all fully extended to give us full display of this great colour and detail. You have him perfectly positioned in the frame for this type of shot.

Thanks, John

Selam Cahit Bey güzel bir saksağan örneğini en hareketli halinde nefis bir şekilde görüntülemişsiniz. Elinize sağlık. Verdiğiniz bilgiler için de ayrıca teşekkürler. Sağlıcakla...

Hi Cahit.
What a nice in-flight picture of the beautiful bird. I have not good shots even of sitting birds of this species. Amazing wingspread of the bird, wonderful blurriness of the well coloured BG and great crisp sharp if the bird image. Well done and TFS.

Hi Cahit,

I have only seen a Magpie once and I thought it was so beautiful. Your picture reinforces that thought. Lovely inflight shot. I love the irridescent green on the tail feathers. Beautiful colors, good details, wonderful position.

Hi Cahit

I have never seen a magpie look so beautiful. I love the way the light is catching the feathers showing off the glorious colours. Amazing sharp frozen flight. Perfect DOF as well

Hello Cahit!
And in Poland this species is named "sroka" :) I am not sure if it is common or not in Turkey, but here in Poland it is very common and abundant, even in bug cities. But this picture is really great! Bicoloured bird (black and white only...) looks fantastic in contrast with so colourful BG. Bravo for taking picture of flying specimen too! :)
Friendly yours,
Radomir

Bonjour Cahit,

Félicitation pour cette superbe prise. J'aime bien les couleurs de l'oiseau et le contraste entre lui et son environnement.
Merci pour le partage.
Joseph.

nice, striking pic, TFS Ori

Hi,
Just marking your post for now...will be back presently.
Goldy

Hi Cahit,
great photo that shows how beatiful magpies really are. I like that the body of the bird is very sharp and the wingtips show a bit of movement blurr: like that the bird does not appear frozwn in time - very dynamic.
Cheers Claus

Hello Cahit !
Wow, I'm really impressed by this capture ! You have frozen the Magpie in the most wonderful of all poses, from a POV which allows us to fully admie the beaty of both wings and tail. Those long feathers are gorgeous. The blured BG is splendid, too, and it allows the Magpie to stand out beautifully. Very well done !
Valerie.
