I am fond of the black & whites more than the colored birds. Wonderful to see. Thanks for visiting my Turkey Vulture.

I truly dig the Magpie family. I just saw the Black-billed Magpie in CO a couple weeks ago. And Oystercatchers are just awesome birds:)

The magpie can look so handsome in his tuxedo. And the butcher bird is a cutie.

Black and white always make the wearer look so elegant, don't you think?

They look formally dressed! I tried to get a picture of "our" magpies when we were in Eastern Washington last week, but flubbed it. They don't hang out here where we are in Oregon.
