Here is another image from Vermejo Ranch.  It is a black-billed magpie in landing on a perch.  (the wooden kind, not the fishy kind).

Stay tuned for more images from Bosque del Apache – I have gotten some neat shots!

Magpie in FlightCanon 1DX.  Canon 200-400 at 781mm (i.e. with internal 1.4x engaged and external 1.4x).  ISO 800.  f.8 @ 1/800 second.  EV +1/3.
