They talk of the North American Black-billed Magpie which they say looks almost identical to the Eurasian (UK) form - this name differentiates it from the Yellow-billed Pica nuttalli,
and makes some sense of it.
I can't let these lichens intimidate me!!
They are so tiny and yet so beautiful - so I must share, even if I can't name them.
Whilst it seems likely to be that subspecies (since that is the one in Britain and they do not particularly move around) I'm not sure enough can be seen in this photo to safely identify it to sub-species level
to give a rather nice idea of the distribution of the ssp.
Do you think that the French ssp. galliae would be likely to occur in the UK?
- others might be the Spanish ssp., or Germannic Pica pica germanica which appears to be very localised.
Perhaps not likely but stuff does turn up out of range sometimes.
I only meant to put magpie. The 'black billed' part must have been clicked by mistake when I was inputting the common name and the list of options comes up.
