There are around 15 different species of magpie spread across Europe, Asia and parts of Australia and Africa. Magpies are around 20" long with a slightly larger wingspan, although the exact size of the magpie is dependent on the species. The magpie is most closely related to the crow, but the magpie has highly distinguishable black and white feathers.

In China and Korea, the magpie is seen as a symbol of good luck and fortune. In the United Kingdom however, one magpie is said top be bad luck and seeing two is good luck (one for sorrow, two for joy).

The Talking Magpies

"Magpies are the birds that everyone loves to hate. It is difficult to find anyone who has a good word to say about these handsome rogues: in many peoples' eyes, magpies are the avian equivalents of the football hooligan. Once regarded with superstitious awe, today the unfortunate magpie has become an object of hate. It is not unusual to hear mild-mannered old ladies insisting that magpies should be shot, or to read indignant letters in papers, suggesting that the Royal Society of the Protection of Birds (RSPB) should do something about magpies" via: www.birdcare.com

Similar but Different: Magpies

One for sorrow, two for joy,
Three for a girl, four for a boy,
Five for silver, six for gold,
Seven for a secret that must never be told.Mother Goose

Other birds collect twigs for their nests. Magpies collect jewels for theirs.
