The Eurasian Magpie, Pica pica, is closely related to its North America cousin, the Black-billed Magpie (Pica hudsonia). Some taxonomies consider the two to be the same species. Alternate names for the Eurasian Magpie include Common Magpie and European Magpie.
Eurasian Magpies live in parts of Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. They are not migratory.
The Eurasian Mapgie has a pied, or black-and-white, plumage, including a long black tail. Feathers on the tail and wings are a pretty iridescent which shines bronze, blue or green in different light.
