This is a link post Since it's brid watching Sunday
Have a few of these living nearby and their song is amazing.

The look like corvids, same size as crows, walk like corvids and generally act like corvids but... and brace yourself for something so amazing you literally won't believe what you read next...

They are passerines!!!!! OMG!

This is a normal post The magpie - such a friendly bird
Nesting season is the best.
That is when they like to show their appreciation by diving down and fucking up the top of your head with beak and claws.
