I envy you your whiskey-jacks. They're one of my favorite camp birds whenever I'm in the north country.
This was one of my favorites!
Thanks for the pic! We don't have those.
Grizzled- I usually have to travel even further north to see them, but I did encounter one on the Christmas Bird Count here two years ago, just a few miles from where I live. Lynne- I was surprised by how much I enjoyed seeing these birds. I was going for the lifer, the boreal chickadee and hoary redpoll, but gray jays just make me happy for some reason. :)FC- This is another bird that does not make it past 46 degrees latitude. I guess they live through the winter by caching food in tree bark, and if it is too warm of a climate the food will spoil.
They sure are pretty birds. I wish we could see them in southern Minnesota too.
He's beautiful Deb. :c)
thanks for adding us to your blogroll.I love gray jays. We grew up calling them camp robbers. I love going up to Mt. Baker and holding out a handful of sunflower seeds so they can land on my hand & eat.
I just love these birds- a beautiful photo Deb~
