A magpie was a species of Earth bird, of the genus Pica. They were known for stealing shiny objects and placing them in their nests to attract mating partners.

When Solanae orb-drones infested the USS Titan in early 2386, Ranul Keru initially likened them to magpies after witnessing one with a power regulator circuit in its mouth. (TTN novel: Sight Unseen)
