Surely this is the common all garden MAGPIE when did it change its name
You're right, I grew up calling this a Magpie and it still is. Officially it is called a Black-billed Magpie to distinguish it from a rare migrant the Yellow-billed Magpie or so I believe. I'm sure someone out there with more knowledge will add the full details. The iSpot default is Black-billed Magpie but it is a Magpie.

From wikipedia the Black-billed magpie (Pica hudsonia) is a Korean/Alaskan species.
The common name is Black-billed Magpie (though Collins 2nd Edition does use common) according to Madge S. & Burn H. Crows and Jays Helm confirmed in Birds of the World Recommended English Names presumably to differentiate it from the Yellow-billed Magpie (scarce US species)
