MAGPIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Superhero birds aren’t always in costume. Sometimes they go to fancy parties in tuxes. True magpies rank among the smartest birds in the world, and unrelated birds with the same monochromatic coloring in their plumage are often called magpies.

Dick → Black-throated Magpie-jay

Behold the avian wonder known as the Magpie-jay, corvid supreme. Dick Grayson doesn’t do subtle. Also has a white tux variant. (White-throated Magpie-jay)

Jason → Magpie Lark

Tim → Magpie Shrike

Damian → Seychelles Magpie Robin

A Robin endemic to the Seychelles that was driven to the brink of extinction by humans.

BONUS!!!

Broose → Magpie Goose

Look at this suave perfection. Unusual among waterfowl, this goose has only partially webbed feet with long, clawed toes. It often forms mating trios; a female on each wing.
