Synopsis: The last decade or so has seen a number of field studies, in Europe and the States, into the intricacies of the magpie way of life. The author has studied both species of magpie in Europe and the United States, and provides, in this text, an account of their ecology and behaviour. He covers all aspects of their lives - from marital relationships, food hoarding behaviour, longevity and survival, to nesting behaviour, breeding success, and their controversial relationship with man.
"Here is as fine a guide to understanding the behaviour of a wild bird as I can recall reading and from it the general birdwatcher will gain real insight into what local magpies are up to, especially in the breeding season...here is meticulous reviewing, heavily bolstered with the fruits of Birkhead's own scientific endeavours...you must read this book."
--Jim Reid, Scottish Bird News

"Two species of magpie feature in this book, the Black-billed Magpie, familiar to most Europeans, which occurs throughout much of the northern hemisphere, and the Yellow-billed Magpie, which is confined to California. Tim Birkhead has studied both species, and has produced a fascinating account of their ecology and behaviour. Many of the results from his ten year study of magpies in northern England are published here for the first time. Particularly revealing however is his comparison of the two species and of their different races. .[This book] covers all aspects of their lives, including their marital relationships, food hoarding behaviour, longevity and survival, nesting behaviour, breeding success and their controversial relationship with man." .
