Magpies are considered one of the most intelligent animals in the world, and are one of the few non-mammal species to pass the mirror test – a behavioral technique used to determine whether an animal possesses the ability to visually recognize itself.

There are only 9 non-human animal species that have passed the mirror test:
Magpies
Orcas
Asian Elephants
Bottlenose Dolphins
Ants
Bonobo Apes
Chimpanzees
Orangutans
Gorillas

The mirror test is not the be-all end-all of intelligence tests, but these findings are interesting nonetheless.

Magpies are also voracious predators, and young songbirds are high up on their list of preferred prey.
