There are two types of magpies found in North America. Both species are found on the western coast and into the central regions of the continent. The Black-billed Magpie is the most common and abundant of the two and lives in the northern areas and as far east as northern Ontario. The Yellow-billed Magpie can be found in the western areas of California.
The magpies have adapted to people and can be found in all the towns and cities in the west. These non-migratory birds are quite hardy and can be found in towns like Jasper, Alberta, even throughout winter. They are recognized by their long tail feathers and loud calls and they do not go unnoticed.
