      Looks like it might be an Azure-Winged Magpie.

      You sure? I'm no ornithologist, but the bird in my photo is black from the head down to the neck, and has a black tail. Azure-winged magpies are black-headed with azure, white-tipped tails that are grayish-blue underneath. Then again you said "might", so you don't sound too sure of that! :D

      Looks quite a bit like a 'normal' Black-billed Magpie to me.

      It does, doesn't it. What an odd thing to have in Jungle World.
    • BeardsleyZooFan
      I didn't take a very good look at the bird.:eek:
      Like Maguari and Ituri said, it does look like a Black-Billed Magpie, which makes even less sense than having Rodrigues Flying Foxes in JungleWorld.

      That appears to be right, but I can't understand why the Bronx would have American birds in a Southeast-Asian-themed exhibit...

      EDIT:
      Ituri and BZF must've posted whilst I was "researching" :p

      What about a Eurasian magpie? I cannot tell the difference between that and black-billed.
    • AnaheimZoo
      Hmmm... That's tough to tell...

      It looks like a Black-Billed Magpie.
