Magpie (Pica pica), Broomhill
The magpie is a member of the crow family and it has an unmistakable appearance and harsh chak-chak-chak call. Magpies are omnivorous, usually feeding on open ground but also scavenging on rubbish tips and foraging amongst bushes, stealing eggs and nestlings. The sexes are alike and both built the large nest (domed to prevent predation by crows) of twigs with a cup of mud and finer materials. The five to eight blue-green speckled eggs are laid in April.
