We're excited to announce that the Birdorable family has grown with the addition of two new magpies! Joining our beloved Black-billed Magpie and European Magpie, we now have the beautiful Azure-winged Magpie and the unique Yellow-billed Magpie.
The Yellow-billed Magpie is a member of the crow family, native exclusively to California's Central Valley. At first glance, it resembles the common Black-billed Magpie, but upon closer inspection, it reveals its own unique charm. This bird stands out with its striking yellow bill and a matching yellow streak below the eye, adding a dash of brightness to its appearance. The Yellow-billed Magpie's exclusivity to California makes it a special and significant species, representing the diverse avian life of the region.
On the other side of the world, the Azure-winged Magpie brings a touch of elegance with its sleek and slightly smaller stature compared to the European Magpie. This bird is a true beauty, boasting a striking black cap contrasted with azure-blue wings and tail. What makes the Azure-winged Magpie particularly intriguing is its bi-continental distribution, found in two distinctly separate areas: the Iberian Peninsula and eastern Asia.
Our Birdorable versions of these magpies capture their essence in the cutest possible way. These adorable renditions highlight the unique features of each species, from the vibrant yellow accents of the Yellow-billed Magpie to the stunning blue plumage of the Azure-winged Magpie. They're not just a visual treat but also an opportunity to learn about and appreciate the diversity of the magpie family.
