Colour Your World: Indigo

Magpie 18.11 (7)

We have a magpie colony in the trees opposite my home. There are a chattery race, and seem to have a lot to say to each other. They build nests in the forks of the branches from twigs and afterwards the nests remain in the trees when the babies have already flown away. Every morning we scatter our bread remains and they have loud discussions with the crows about who feeds first. Usually the crows are the first and the magpies sit on the branches of the trees and wait for their turn. There is never a dull moment with a magpie and they have indigo feathers on their back.

  1. They are gorgeous. I had thought certain birds we have here, fat and black on top and white underneath, were perhaps magpies, but I am probably wrong–no photos though sorry–

    • They are quite common here. Where I worked we had a colony outside next to the office, which was where I got to know them. When we bought our apartment I was pleased to see they were also our neighbours..
