Western Scrub Jay

Feb 14, 2012 | Birding

For several weeks, we have seen a flash of grey and blue as a larger bird (slightly larger than a mockingbird) disappears into the bushes.  Tina caught good views and identified it as a Western Scrub Jay.  I was on the hunt for one with my camera.

Yesterday we visited a new county park that had bird photography blinds built as part of their facility.  To my surprise, a large Western Scrub Jay appeared and spent a few minutes showing off for us.  A really beautiful bird.
