Eurasian, Black-rumped, Maghreb or Oriental Magpie

Pica [pica, bottanensis, mauritanica or serica] (= Pica pica) (Linnaeus, 1758)

The Eurasian Magpie, European Magpie, or Common Magpie (Pica pica) is a resident breeding bird throughout Europe, much of Asia and northwest Africa. It is one of several birds in the crow family named as magpies, and belongs to the Holarctic radiation of "monochrome" magpies. In Europe, "Magpie" is used by English speakers as a synonym for the European Magpie; it is the only magpie in Europe outside the Iberian Peninsula. Source: Wikipedia
