Spotting

Description:

The bird I am seeing is probably from the magpie family and lives in these large nests near the tops of trees or power poles or decorations on the tops of Chinese homes. The bird it is mostly black with some white patches on the wings and body.

Habitat:

These birds are in China. Right now I'm in Jiaxing-Haining. The nests are made with large sticks approximately 1/4" - 3/4" in diameter.

Notes:

Thanks for your help in advance.
