Magpies Keeping Watch, Pendennis Point by Rod Johnson

Magpies Keeping Watch, Pendennis Point

Two common magpies (Pica pica), keeping watch at Pendennis Point, Falmouth in Cornwall, England. The two birds were using an information board, entitled "Watching the Waterline", as a perch. I saw them return to this board many times. The Point is a favourite spot for locals and visitors to watch ships and boats and the birds were watching for any food particles being dropped by the people.
