Red-billed Blue-Magpie

About the Red-billed Blue-Magpie

Also known as: Blue Magpie
The Red-billed Blue Magpie is a species of corvid found across parts of central Asia, including central and eastern China. They can be recognized by their white and dark blue plumage, bright orange-red bill, and extremely long tail. Their tails are among the longest found on any corvid species.

Like many corvid species, Red-billed Blue-Magpies are opportunistic feeders, taking small prey like beetles, lizards, and caterpillars, as well as fruits, seeds, and eggs of other birds.

They can be found in different habitat types, from forest to gardens to developed lands. They may move seasonally, especially to follow available food, but are generally non-migratory throughout their range.
