The Yellow-billed Magpie is a California endemic, living only in this state's Central Valley and coastal valleys. It enjoys oak woodlands, and is a popular bird among enthusiasts. It has been designated as Climate Endangered because it is projected to lose more than 60% of its climate suitability range by 2080.
Below is a map of its projected climate suitability breeding range now, and in 2050.
