We spotted many of these large birds searching the grass in parks and near the Museo del Prado. It's a Eurasian Magpie, with white and dark blue feathers.
Common Blackbird. The stuck to the grassy parks, same as the magpies.
An Indian Peafowl resting on the back steps of the Palacio Real.
We took a day trip outside of Madrid to see the Castillo de Manzanares el Real, and in the small town just below the castle, dozens of these White Storks made their nest atop buildings and the local church tower.
And that's your brief nature class for the day.
