After last week's rain storms, we finally got some more snow, and that seemed to make the birds come out to the feeders en masse. One of our frequent visitors is the Black Billed Magpie. A lot of people really dislike this bird. They are loud, obnoxious, greedy, messy. But they really are quite pretty.
Magpies, along with a few other species, are also natural garbage collectors, and help keep the planet clean. So despite their obnoxiousness, I am rather fond of Magpies.
