Australian Magpie: Sun-hazing

Australian Magpie, Gymnorhina tibicen


We've had a few days of unseasonal cold weather and today's sunshine was enough for Maggie to settle down spread out the wings and feathers and let the sun warmth penetrate.

Sun-hazing has an effect of torpor and the bird seems to drift off.

They do bounce back out of it almost instantly, in a 'What was I thinking of" state.
