Have you ever seen a bird like this one?

Magpies Pica pica are extremely sedentary, and breed close to human settlements. Familiar to most people in Europe, you perhaps notice if you have seen one of these normally black and white birds with different colors.

The literature have described white, brown, black, and birds that partly have these colors. Lately, I have received information about a few magpies with yellow instead of white feathers (see photo).

I want to find out how common these different variants of abnormal colors in magpies are. Please spread this question to everybody interesting in nature, so I can get insight in this question. No one has ever analyzed this before, and with your help, science will get new insight. Please fill in the questionary. I will publish the results, and I will acknowledge everybody giving good feedback. Photos are very welcome.
