[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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 the brain of chimpanzees, orangutans and humans.

Hello Dariusz,
Very nice photo of this Magpie in a good composition, attractive eye contact, fine sharpness and a nice blurry background.
