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.
