Sounds & Calls
Eurasian magpies make a few different sounds, their most commonly heard call is a loud, harsh chattering “chak-chak-chak-chak…..”. They also give shorter “ch-tak” calls and higher-pitched descending squealing sounds. Soft, warbling mechanical songs are also occasionally given by this species which can include mimicry.
