Day 65 - Magpie waiting

I watched this magpie standing in my driveway apparently waiting for some(bird). He stood there looking this way and that way, and was soon joined by another magpie. Off they both went.
You can see the effects of the drought in this photo - our grass (Kikuya) is normally green without water but now is dry as straw. First time I've seen it this bad.


  1. Didn't realize how large these birds are! Know the drought is impacting both now and likely in the future...

  2. I've never seen a magpie - thanks for sharing - a delightful shot. Not so delightful is your drought - hope you have some steady rain soon.

  3. We had a downpour last week during our Athletics day!
