Eurasian Magpie [pica, fennorum, bactriana, melanotos, camtschatica]

Pica pica [pica, fennorum, bactriana, melanotos, camtschatica] (= Pica pica pica) (Linnaeus, 1758)

The Eurasian magpie or common magpie is a resident breeding bird throughout the northern part of the Eurasian continent. It is one of several birds in the crow family (corvids) designated magpies, and belongs to the Holarctic radiation of "monochrome" magpies. In Europe, "magpie" is used by English speakers as a synonym for the Eurasian magpie: the only other magpie in Europe is the Iberian magpie, which is limited to the Iberian Peninsula.
