The European Magpie (Pica pica) is an infamous thief known to steal shiny objects such as gold and jewels. It is also considered one of the smartest animals on the planet and is the only non-mammal able to recognize itself in a mirror.
Magpie - This isn't the magpie that I see in my garden or the local parks here in Australia. It is beautiful and this is a lovely photograph. Wish I could attribute it but photographer's names are missing in at least of the images online.
