Eurasian Magpie, Pica pica

Eurasian Magpie
The Eurasian Magpie used to be lumped in the same species with the North American
 Black-billed Magpie
(Pica hudsonia). But DNA studies showed the Black-billed
to be more closely related to the North American Yellow-billed Magpie than to the
almost identical looking magpie of the old world.
