We were setting outdoors having a "Holiday Drink" when this "Yellow-Billed Magpie" landed with-in just a few feet of us, at our site. DesertDale did not have his camera handing. He actually had time to go into our rig and get. Came out and took these magnificent photos of the bird.
The "Yellow-Billed Magpie are only in the central Valley of California. All others Magpies are "Black-Billed.
Here the "little guy" is splashing through water. "Good shot."
They may be threatened by the "West Nile Virus", plus other factors.
Enjoy all of DesertDale's photos. "Keep it up "Old Mighty One."
Cloudy this morning. Hope to be on the road Sunday.
Your one and only, Kitfoxgal
