(Common) Magpie (Pica pica)

A much larger and heavier bird than its cousin the Azure-winged Magpie, the Common Magpie is resident throughout Portugal but relatively uncommon in the southern half of the country, though in recent years, in common with the trend in northern Europe, I have noticed a marked increase in both numbers and distribution.

Sexes are similar and the bird is relatively unafraid of Man and easily approached and observed.
