From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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.
The Eurasian magpie is one of the most intelligent birds, and it is believed to be one of the most intelligent of all animals. The expansion of its nidopallium is approximately the same in its relative size as is found in chimpanzees, orangutans and humans.

Hi Jiri,
lovely shot ..
Very beautiful photo in nice sharpness and details.
Best wishes,

Hello Jiri,
Hope you are well. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you. Thanks for your comments and support dear. Sitting probably in a eucalyptus tree, this magpie looks splendid.The focus is perfect and had you tried, you would have been able to remove some of the leaves through cloning.Thanks a lot for sharing a fine shot, take care.,
warm regards/Abid

Hello Jiri,
A nice capture of a very smart bird. She learns very quick how to obtain food....
She is hunted in my region because she attacks nests, small birds....

Hello Jiri,
charming portrait of an Eurasian magpie that is obviously feeling quite well hidden among the leaves. Well done to show the whole bird in its hide in such a clear way, well detailed and well lighted. Even the iridescence on some of its black feathers is nicely well visible. Thank you!
With best regards, and all my best wishes to you for a peaceful and happy New Year,

Hello Jiri,

Happy New Year my Friend.

EXCELLENT CAPTURE among the tree branches.Not an easy position to take this shot.
