Magpie frozen treats

Yesterday I was at the snowy grounds (we had snowfall overnight) of the University of Manitoba. It was a grey overcast day, but while there I was entertained by this beautiful Black-billed Magpie. He was very busy & vocal, flying and hopping around the campus grounds gathering food and trinkets. They are rather large birds approximately 17-21 inches in length, and are from the Crow & Jay family. Hope you enjoy these photos. Taken with HP 945 digital camera then cropped and framed in PhotoFiltre. Have a wonderful Friday....
