Like the others, this magpie is about to roost at sunset but appears to be all alone. Look carefully: it may have a broken leg.

it is a weird position for the leg isn’t it? beautiful photo-I didn’t even see the other one in lower left til today!

The color on the branches is amazing…

My guess is that it was taken in the late afternoon?

David: Yes, I’m pretty sure it’s broken!

Kile: Those are the last rays of the setting sun…

Do you have a bird feeder by any chance?

Suz: yes, I do. I put out sunflower seeds every morning and evening on a stump out front and a homemade platform feeder in back. Why do you ask?
