Red-billed Blue Magpie

A species of bird in the crow family, Corvidae, is the red-billed blue magpie (Urocissa erythroryncha). It is around the same size as the Eurasian magpie but has one of the longest tails of any corvid, a much longer tail. It is 65–68 cm (25.5–27 in) long and 196–232 g in weight.

In a wide swathe from the northern parts of the Indian Subcontinent, and further eastward, the red-billed blue magpie occurs. It extends eastward from the Western Himalayas to Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, and in evergreen forest and scrub in mainly hilly or mountainous territory, through central and eastern China to southwest Manchuria.
