Where Are The Birds?

Driving my Wyoming/Nebraska route I've had a nagging feeling of something missing. Realized yesterday I'm missing magpies.

For as long as I can remember where there was road kill there was magpies but this year I've not seen a single one.

I've seen a few crows or ravens, I really don't know the difference, and a few raptors but no magpies. Puzzling.


  1. Maybe the pick'ns are better back in the hills with less traffic to deal with.

  2. Maybe Coffeypot's right. We saw plenty of magpies in early August in the foothills of north central WYO.

  3. Here in Sacramento, the Magpies proved to be very susceptible to West Nile Disease and we lost a lot of them

    1. We have a lot of West Nile Disease along the Front Range.
