Magpies (but not as we know them)

I went to the Impressionists exhibition at the art gallery this week and was particularly struck by the picture by Claude Monet of a magpie sitting on a gate in a snowy landscape. It’s a terrific picture, but the magpie is not like the bird I know and love and have written about here before. So I’ve looked it up, and it turns out there are magpies in the world that aren’t even black and white. I am shocked. So, thanks to the internet, here are some pics of the other maggies around, plus a couple of pics of the Monet in the Art gallery. My grateful thanks to those who took the pictures that appear below (click on images to enlarge).
