Blue on Blue

Magpies are large and flashy relatives of the jay and crow family. Appearing mostly black and white, when sun-struck they gleam with iridescence of blues and greens. Like most corvids they are highly inquisitive, intelligent and social. Widespread in the West they might give pursuit to butterflies, in a flash of blue.
