Travel Theme: Birds

Ailsa of ‘Where’s My Backpack?‘ has been doing a bit of bird-spotting this week. If you would like to join in with her challenge then please do. Everyone is welcome.

The Steller’s Jay is a jay native to western North America, closely related to the Blue Jay found in the rest of the continent, but with a black head and upper body. It is also known as the Long-crested Jay, Mountain Jay, and Pine Jay (Wikipedia)

I was fortunate enough to capture a shot of this one in Sedona, USA. Shame about the messy background.

    • It was a lucky shot, usually I see a flash of blue out of the corner of my eye and that’s that. We once ‘stalked’ one on Vancouver Island, and every time we tried to get a photo it would fly away!

  1. Oh, what a nice bird. There is no such species in Sweden. To me it looks very exotic. And the messy background goes very well together with the bird’s feet and ‘hair style’.

    • Thank you for your comment Ninano. We don’t get such blue birds here either. I was lucky that this one came into the garden of the B&B we were staying in for peanuts, so I was able to get a few shots of him.

I'd like to hear your opinion
