[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The black billed magpie builds a very large nest made of sticks as you see. The bottom of the inside is made of mud and fine materials such as grasses. Both the male and female pairs participate in building the nest, setting the nest, and foraging for food for the young. They lay about 6-8 brown speckled eggs.

I am about 25 meters from the subject.
