Discover the Latest Additions to Birdorable: Two Stunning Magpie Species

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.
