About The Black-billed Magpie

Black-billed magpies are found in western North America, with a range extending from northwestern Alaska through the prairie provinces of Canada to southern Manitoba, and south to northern Arizona, New Mexico, and western Texas. The boundaries of this range overlap with a region characterized by a cold, semi-arid, steppe climate. Black-billed magpie distribution may be limited by summer heat in the desert regions to the south, humidity to the east, and dense boreal forest to the north.
