I believe it's a magpie.

Not just any magpie, either, but a MAGNIFICENT Villigen Magpie. What a gorgeous bird. Glad you captured this lovely image. About how large did it look to you? (ie. crow size, sparrow size, hawk size?) Thanks,

Nice shot, Z ! I can see a lot of magpies over here. In trees or on grass.

A beautiful bird who looks well fed.

Thank you all for the feedback.

Kim: about crow sized. I used the end of my 12x zoom for this shot.
