Ah, a Steller's Jay! Being from California, I miss them.
I actually convinced one to eat out my hand once. It took a couple of months. they love peanuts. He never ate them though, just buried 'em.
aww..I love him!!
Beautiful Pat... They look so different from our Bluejays here and are much prettier!!!!Betsy
As a yankee fan I have to say I'm not a fan. Great pic though.
love this- I am from Toronto afterall.
Lovely photo :-)
Pretty!!!! Blue jays are such colorful birds. They can be nasty, too. (But they're excused since they're so pretty..heehee)
My favorite bird...Beautiful picture :-)

Our Bluejays are load noisy birds.Almost on the same nuisance level as Magpies.
She's so pretty

Bee u tee ful!!
Lovely little bird.We don't see many of those here.
Yep, I remember this post, Pat. When I moved to Texas I discovered we had the regular Blue Jays, and they are pretty funny when they all gang up on our cats.Ah, I sure do miss California sometimes...
Birds, my fave. My figurine collection has more jays and bluebirds than any other. Trying to catch up today on someone elses computer, the DSL I got is soooo slow, unless it is 3 AM... They said I am too far away from some sort of booster station. Moving soon hope it will be different there.
I'm a big fan of the blue jay. He's wiley, vain, smart, and insists on being heard. You caught the right look.
Thanks everyone! Yes these guys are so cocky! So much attitute. We have another type our here called a "scrub jay" also. They don't have the top-knot.
The Steller's Jay is my favorite of the Blue Jay family. When we lived on the west side of the state there was one that would come to our patio door and take peanuts from my hand.
I also got one to come in my back door for most of a summer. He eventually learned exactly where he could find a peanut. then he'd bury them in my backyard.
Seeing how all of you love blue jays so much you can come up here to Alberta and have ours.
