sleeping magpies by moonlight

This group of magpies has taken to sleeping in the tree above the bird feeder I made. That way they wake up to breakfast below without any searching and get there before the cockatoos. They often carol in the middle of a still night, which against the backdrop of a thousand stars is something magical.
