Magpies are one of Montana's few year-round feathered residents. These birds have many unique characteristics. People have had a long association with magpies – from prehistory to present. Known today for its scavenging, black-billed magpies once frequently followed bison-hunting First Peoples and lived on the scraps of their hunts. In fact, in many ways, magpies are a lot like people.
