We are a black and white bird taht can be found throughout the world, specifically Europe, Asia, western North America, and portions of northern Africa. For my friends in Australia, you may be familiar with a bird called the Australian magpie. Though we look a bit alike, we actually are not related! We magpies mate for life, and the male and female choose a mesting site together. Once they find a suitable place, they build a domed nest and share in the work.
