Research has recently cast doubt on the taxonomy of the Pica magpies, since it appears that P. hudsonia and P. nuttalli may not be different species, whereas the...

The Black-billed Magpie is a large bird in the crow family that occurs in the western half of North America from Alaska to Oklahoma. Externally, it is almost identical with European Magpie (Pica pica) and is often considered specific. However, the American Ornithologists' Union splits it as a separate species (Pica hudsonia) on the grounds that it is genetically closer to California's Yellow-billed Magpie (Pica nuttalli) than to the European Magpie. This bird prefers semi-open country with...
