Reply to: Urraca by Miss Claire
Urraca has germanic origin (comes from "uro") and defines the magpie.
There's a cartoon known as "Something magpies" where the magpies are called Heckle and Jeckle. In Spanish, we know them as Tuco and Tico, and the cartoon is "Las urracas parlanchinas" (The chatterbox [or talkative]magpies). EG.
