Yellow-billed Magpie, Pica nuttalli


Yellow-billed Magpie
The Yellow-billed Magpie is one of the few birds endemic to California, much-prized by visiting birders from out of state. It differs from the Black-billed Magpie only in having yellow rather than black as the color of its bill and the bare skin around its eye, and in its slightly smaller size.
