Who doesn’t know them, the black and white birds from next door, with the long tail feathers and the perky call. True magpies are found almost everywhere in the world, but they also have lesser-known relatives like the blue magpie. And then there are magpies that are called as such, but aren’t really magpies at all.
The reputation of magpies is rather bad: they are considered thievish and deceitful. In fact, however, the corvids are very clever and curious. Their distinctive appearance and the fact that they often stay close to people have made them part of our culture. And we have attributed a lot to them. What is truth and what is myth?

Thank you for your interest in Text & Bild.
Unfortunately we were too excited and could not wait to launch our brand new website. The english translation of our site was sacrified by our drive. But we'll fix this shortly.
Thank you for your understanding.
