This is second Magpie after Yellow-billed Magpie which I am going to cover in this blog. Recently, When I was taking pictures of Yellow-billed Magpie, then I noticed that there are few Red-billed Magpie are also around me. 

The Red-billed Magpie in the picture above becomes my friend and I got a chance to take its close up picture. Though, the numbers of Yellow (Gold)-billed Magpies were much higher than the Red-billed Magpie birds.

Sometimes, we can find both Red-billed Magpie and Yellow-billed Magpie in a single group and the difference between these magpies is due to differences in color of their bills and feet; otherwise, both Yellow-billed Magpie and Red-billed Magpie are same physically.
