[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The European Magpie (Pica pica) is a resident breeding bird throughout Europe, much of Asia, and northwest Africa.

The Magpie is common in European folklore, with multiple superstitions surrounding it. Generally speaking, the bird is associated with unhappiness and trouble. This may be because of its well known tendency to "steal" shiny objects. Also magpies are not blessed with it pretty singing voice. Related to crows, the cries of the magpies are very similar.
