In the Wind

Here’s a Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) having a bad hair day, thanks to the wind! It’s sitting in our Empress tree. The brown objects are flower buds which have been on the tree all winter and will soon bloom in lovely purple flowers!

This spot on the fence is proving to be a nice location for a portrait. The other day it was a Flicker. Just after it left, this Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) dropped in to see what was going on!

A Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) presented me with this perfect post. So, I took it’s photo! Background colour bokeh comes from a Japanese Maple. I have feature the Stellar’s Jay a number of times, but I never become bored with this Handsome, Intelligent birds. Especially one that poses for me!

I haven’t had a Stellar’s for awhile. Here is one of our troop. We have five regulars that visit every day and relieve us of a bag of peanuts. A Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) or Scruffy, if you like!
