[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my forth photo regarding a story that begun some time ago .....
Some weeks ago I founded in my garden three small magpie that felt down from their nest.I took them and I started feeding them.
I posted the first photo of one of them eating.
After one week they grew up and survived !!!!
I posted another photo where you can see how many feathers they have.
Considering tha they have to heat continuosly I bring them in the office with me every morning.
After a while they begun to learn how to fly.
Now they have much more confidence and start flying for more long distances.

In any case they still need that I feed them.
They spend the day in the garden but in the night I put them inside a small house for the garden tools.

I will keep you informed about their story with a new photo next week.

What a success story, Riccardo. I have followed your story of the magpie babies with much interest. I cannot believe how fast they are growing. You captured that one with sharp details and great light in an excellent composition. You must feel like a proud pappa. Well done, and thanks for sharing that wonderful story. : )

Hello Riccardo

This is a very healthy looking fella. You have done a marvelous job with these wee chicks. He stands tall and alert. You have captured and excellent catchlight in the eye. Well done on both your efforts in raising these birds and the photo. Thanks.

I love this photo. Very well exposed (b/w is difficult) and fantastic pose of the bird. The catchlight in the eye is fantastic and the composition is very strong. Well done & TFS!
