Information about the Yellow-Billed Magpie:
The Yellow-Billed Magpie is native only to the Central Valley and Central Coast Ranges of California, unlike it's relative the Black-Billed Magpie which is found in much of the rest of the United States. It very strongly resembles the Black-Billed Magpie too, except for the striking yellow beak and thin strip outline around the eyes. . It is a member of the crow family. The Latin name is in honor of the English naturalist Thomas Nuttall. Magpies are clever and opportunistic feeders. They will steal food from orchards, campsites and backyards, exploiting many different types of human inhabitance. While the birds are not considered endangered, West Nile Virus, habitat loss and pesticide use has greatly decreased their numbers and they have been extirpated in many areas they were once common.
