Three on ground, feeding?
Town Centre, flying
Two magpies singing, one nearby and the other around 200m away- I have heard them a couple of times before over the last couple of weeks. I have lived in this area for about twelve years and can't recall ever having observed (heard or seen) magpies before, including when I worked as a postie in this area for about 7 years.

Saw this Magpie busy collecting food for it's young, along with it's mate. Hoonhay Valley, Christchurch. This one was of particular interest to me, however, as it appears to be a black backed variety. It's mate had the more common white plumage on the "saddle" area. The photos I have, unfortunately, are not very good, but hopefully will be adequate for an id.
