SRI LANKA BLUE MAGPIE or CEYLON MAGPIE (Urocissa ornata) - ©Rainbirder
Sri Lanka blue magpie is a member of the crow family living in the hill forests of Sri Lanka, where it is endemic. 
This is a species of a dense wet evergreen temperate rain forest. 
 It is declining due to loss of this habitat. 
Sri Lanka blue magpie  is  usually found in small groups of up to six or seven birds. 
It is largely  carnivorous, eating small frogs, lizards, insects and other invertebrates, but will eat fruit.
The Sri Lanka Blue Magpie is about the same size as the European Magpie at 42–47 cm. The adults are blue with chestnut head and wings, and a  long white-tipped tail. The legs and bill are red. The young bird is a  duller version of the adult.
The Sri Lanka Blue Magpie has a variety of calls including mimicry, a loud chink-chink and a rasping krak-krak-krak-krak.
