Sticky Situation

Black-billed Magpie

I’m always amazed about how birds like certain environments. It seems like this super dead tree wouldn’t be where I would pick to hang out but this bird seemed to love it! Looks like you would poke an eye out! 🙂

Have you seen birds in weird locations?

  1. Nice photograph. My neighbor had a dead tree for about 9 months. During that time it attracted more birds than any other of the nearby alive trees. Must be the clear “birds eye” view they get with no leaves. Thanks for sharing.


    1. We have Yellow-billed Magpies in San Diego, which looks almost identical to this one except the bill. They aren’t really common but I’ve seen them in the Elfin Forest area.

      I don’t remember ever seeing magpies in Texas when I was there either. I do remember seeing them in Arkansas and maybe Oklahoma though… so they are somewhat “nearby.”
