Australian Magpie in a Tree - Mundy Regional Park by Andrew Priest, on Flickr
The Australian magpie (Gymnorhina tibicen) is a medium-sized black and white passerine bird native to Australia and southern New Guinea, This fine specimen was enjoying the sun and water at Whistlepipe Gully in the Mundy Regional Park.
We were walking the park as part of Ibu Anne’s training to complete the Oxfam Trailwalker 50km.
A quick google of seagulls and St Ives would suggest that Alfred Hitchcock must have filmed his movie, Birds at St Ives. Thankfully our visit was a peaceful one with no need to jump into the sea or take other such drastic actions.
Several shots from yesterday. All of them around northern Utah/southern Idaho area. Golden eagle was really far away in the tree, but this is the third time I witnessed golden in my life, so my heartbeat was going up like skyrocket!
