June 5-8 - Help us Count Yellow-billed Magpies
The Yellow-billed Magpie is one of California’s most striking birds. Popular among birders and compelling among conservationists, the bird lives only in California’s Central Valley and coastal ranges. For a variety of reasons – including habitat loss, poison, and West Nile Virus – the Yellow-billed Magpie population has found itself at risk in recent years, and it is now an Audubon Watchlist species.
If we want to help the Yellow-billed Magpie survive, we need to know where it is living and in what numbers. And that’s where you can help. Audubon California is sponsoring a four-day statewide survey of Yellow-billed Magpies enlisted the help of volunteer birders. More information here.
