Bird Talk

 I went for a hike through the Cascades with some friends awhile ago and when we had lunch I noticed this Magpie watching me as I ate  my lunch.  I was able to get right up close and hand feed him some crusts of bread.  In the top photo he was more interested in what I had in my cup!  I'm sure he would have tasted it if I had offered!   After these were taken he flew off up the hill and disappeared.  About twenty minutes later I went up the hill to the golf course and called him.  (No, I didn't know his name!)  From out of the bushes he came, running & skipping along the grass and came right up to me to get some more bread!  Other Magpies came too but none of them would come close to me except this one.  I think he was sorry to see me leave!  Thanks for dropping by: {{HUGS}} from me to YOU:-)
