      On my way back from a pelagic trip on Monday, I stopped at a rest stop on
      US 101 between Camp Roberts and Paso Robles. There was a Yellow-billed
      Magpie strutting all over the parking lot. I tried to get a picture of
      it with my digicam but it took exception to that (and I was sitting
      inside my truck in the shade). It flew up into a tree, scolding me, and
      finally flew off elsewhere. One other location I've seen YBMs is Morgan
      Hill in Santa Clara County, the northernmost reach of its range; a friend
      who lives there pointed them out to me in March 2003.

      Monday's YBM looked pretty lively to me and I hope it's one of the
      resistant ones.
