[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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. (from Wikipedia)

Hello Soumen,
A beautiful bird that reminds me of our American Crow, except for the white feathers on it's wing and abdomen.

Hello Soumen

Excellent photo of the Eurasian Magpie,
its white and black plumage doing great contrast, TFS
