Magpie alarm clock

These magpies wake us up about 6:00 in the morning and then fly away.  They are very handsome birds but are so skittish and hard to photograph but I'm still hoping to get at least one good shot.

The chickens, no roosters, are nice and quiet.  We let them in and out of their pen for a few days while their owner was out of town.  They are anxious for me to hurry up and get a photo so they can get up and go.

As soon as they get out of their pen in the morning they head for the pond for a nice cool drink.  They put themselves to bed at night and then we closed the gate to keep the coyotes out.
