Experiences & anecdotes

05/10/2023 - I arrived in Athens, not sure where or what birds I was going to see. The Eurasian Magpie was one of my favorite birds we found in the city. I got my first great look at this bird on our visit to the Parthenon at the Acropolis. As we climbed the hill, we saw many of these birds flying around.

The backside of a Eurasian Magpie. It looks like it has some kind of food it's contemplating eating. Is it something dead? I'm not sure. It wasn't until I reviewed this photo that I noticed it had something. | 04/24/2023
