The Uninvited Guest

Part of a busy Sunday was being at a karate tournament with H.

There were a couple of uninvited guests in the sports hall, some people seemed disturbed by these visitors - I rather liked them!

Not sure if these are back-belts, but they are Magpies!




You can find more pictures from around the world here at Our World Tuesday.  SM

  13. From what I've gathered from the 'net, magpies are what we call "trash birds" here. I think they're beautiful, though. I love our "trash birds" - starlings. They make me think of demented and constipated old men stomping along.

    Hope you'll link up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/06/nesting.html
