While in Pokhri, Chamoli Dist. (2019) we saw many of these magpies, all in pairs frolicking around and nesting. Saw these two playfully teasing each other for a while, and in one moment during their fun time together saw one of them 'whispering' to the other while the other seemed intently 'listening' . Seemed interesting to watch their behavior.
