Common Green Magpie: this photograph may not be used without permission.The Common Green Magpie or Cissa chinensis is a member of the crow and it is far beyond common as its name connotes; the colours this bird displays is so animation like and it’s like watching a cartoon with characters painted with straightforward colours from the palette. We waited for this bird to appear and when it came our shutters shut roared like angry popcorn machines and we used all the settings we can in order for us to be sure that this beauty is written properly in our memory cards.
There are different versions of this Common Green Magpie also found in other Southeast Asian Countries. The reason why it is called common, maybe, is that it can also be found elsewhere but of course there are endemics of this bird to other countries. The colours are just so alive and clean and watching this bird move around as it bathe and eat was just a fantastic experience.
Having this bird in our collection is an absolute joy!
