Black-billed Magpie (Pica pica sericea) -- 까치

Black-billed Magpie (Pica pica)

Korean Magpie Pica pica sericea is currently considered a subspecies of the European Magpie found in East Asia. It is a common symbol of the Korean identity, and has been adopted as the "official bird" of numerous South Korean cities, counties and provinces. Compared to the European Magpie, it has a markedly shorter tail and a longer wing in relation to each other, and the back and tail show strong purple and hardly any green iridescence.
