The north side of our front yard is a certified National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat. Really! We have a certificate! You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young. It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit. I have a series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.

These are my photos, but this is not my back yard! ;-) When we were vacationing in Colorado, we saw these beautiful black and white birds all over the place. These pictures were taken at Garden of the Gods.
A little research has led me to believe this is an American Magpie AKA Black Billed Magpie. Since we don't see them in Arkansas, I was absolutely fascinated with them, finding them to be loud and bold. 'Not afraid of us at all. As I have been reading about them, I notice they seem to be either loved or hated. Interesting!
This is my favorite Magpie photograph with Pike's Peak in the background!
I'm certainly no expert on birds in Colorado, and would love to hear more about these bold, black and white beauties! Do you love them or hate them? Please tell me all about it! ;-)
A little blogging music. Sing, Sing, Sing!
