Magpie

Observation - Magpie. Description: This bird kept scrabbling about in the tree, clumsily creeping from branch to branch. All the time I was there, two other Magpies were making a loud alarm call (the one that sounds like an old football rattle). I presume this bird was a fledgling just out

This bird kept scrabbling about in the tree, clumsily creeping from branch to branch. All the time I was there, two other Magpies were making a loud alarm call (the one that sounds like an old football rattle). I presume this bird was a fledgling just out of the nest? Does anyone know if there are any key visual features that show it is a juvenile?
