Winged Mischief

Iconic of the American West, Black-billed Magpies are bold and flashy members of the jay and raven family. Across a field or on a fence post, they appear to display a distinctive black and white pattern. Playful groups travel together, sweeping across the landscape in waves of sapphire and emerald.
