A good set, David.
I especially like the last image- partly because of all the greens. But mostly because you caught the magpie in an animated position- stretched tall to get the best look at you.
I'd be tempted to crop out some of the oof grass at the bottom, but it's no big deal.

David, that common Myna doesn't look common to me.
The last two are my favorites.

Thanks for sharing David, I am liking #3 and #5 and the variety you have shown.

I imagine the Whistling Kite has that name for a reason?

those magpies are very cool and this is a nice shot of one. looks like you're lying in the grass with him to get such a nice, low angle. very cool david.
