Decided to test out the HD video capabilities of my new Canon SX240 HS on a subject who was more than willing to volunteer for the job. It was amazing to see how tame this magpie was to let me stay about 2ft away from him. It was originally in 1080p24 but my older copy of iMovie exports as 720p. Normally magpies will not let people close enough to hear the wide range of vocalizations they make. Typically you’d only hear their screeching but up close they sound a lot different.
