I am also known as Skjór

I found this young magpie outside my apartment on the lawn. It had yet to learn how to fly, and therefore was forced to explore the immensity of the world from the ground, vocally encouraged by its parents.

Lovely! Magpies where I live are beautiful. Though very common and considered scavengers, I love them. We have more in our back yard now that we have dogs--I think the birds like the dog food.

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts. They are very common this part of Sweden too. But I like them. The other day when I came home a couple of them made some noise because I came to close to their still not airborne child. They are very protective of their little ones.

Skjór is Icelandic for magpie by the way. The title of the post was not meant to be self-descriptory. :)
