Common Green Magpie

Cissa chinensis

Notes:

As if to wish us happy new year this beautiful bird came on the juniper tree next to our house screaming! I managed to take a few photos, but it remained hidden among the branches.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
