The magpie, a corvid with contrasting colors, which does not hesitate to remove young sparrows from their brood to feed its own. The chaffinch, a famous passerine which allowed Darwin to develop his theory on the evolution of the species, which is called “gay”, because of the intensity of its nuptial song, during the mating season.
