Magpies

These birds, although beautiful and reputedly intelligent, are quite annoying. They are very prolific around the Pacific Northwest, but typically avoid cities. This one was resting on the fence around a local elementary school located behind the movie theatre. (And yes, we only have one theatre.) I wish I could've caught a shot of him flying, so you could see the real beauty of these birds, but he took off too quickly and there wasn't enough time.

They are a pain in the you-know-what...I have seen them sit on a bicycle seat and unzip a bag and pull out the food therein!

Amazing!
