Magpie - One of the most intelligent birds, bossy but so beautiful. I welcome them to my habitat! And yes, it is illegal to kill them in Utah, so suck it up and enjoy this gorgeous smarty-pants!

The European Magpie is an infamous thief known to steal shiny objects such as gold and jewels. It is also considered one of the smartest animals on the planet and is the only non-mammal able to recognize itself in a mirror

Smart Birdy: Along with dolphins and chimpanzees, the Eurasian magpie is right up there with the most intelligent animals on earth. The mirror test (the ability to recognize yourself in a mirror) is seen as an important test in animal intelligence, and the Eurasian magpie is the only non-mammal that has passed it. It also has one of the largest brain-to-weight ratios in the animal kingdom and has been observed using tools, working in teams, playing games, and grieving.
