Magpie Nest Arrival

Arvada, CO

Close to home during the Covid19 crisis, I found this black-billed magpie nest site along a canal, bordering an equestrian area from Arvada's more rural days. The magpie pair is working overtime to complete the domed structure - they're one of the few birds who build a domed nest and among the world's smartest birds. I made this image of a magpie arriving with a stick in early morning after a light spring snowstorm the night before.

Magpie Nest Arrival print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

Select a print size:

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
