According to "Australian Magpie" by Gisela Kaplan, a successful Mapgie can
live to 25 or 30  years, depending on occupying a top quality territory and
no accidents.  This book, in the Australian Natural History Series,
CSIRO/UNSW Press (available from Andrew Isles), contains all the most recent
research on this  most prominent of our black and white birds, and is a good
read for those interested in understanding their local Magpies.
