The Yellow-billed Magpie, Pica nuttalli, is a large bird in the crow family found only in California. It inhabits the Central Valley and the adjacent chaparral foothills and mountains. Apart from its having a yellow bill and a yellow streak around the eye, it is virtually identical to the Black-billed Magpie (Pica hudsonia) found in much of the rest of North America.
Yellow-billed magpie in "Birdwitching"Edit
A report of a yellow-billed magpie on the Fernwood CSPANC scroll during the annual Yule Bird Count led Lucy Parker to magick a green kingfisher into the area. The resulting magicking made for a memorable Yule Bird Count.
