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!

Here’s Scruffy. A Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) Like all Jays, it is a rascal. Here it’s in the Fuchsia flower pot hanging on our deck, right over there by the hummingbird feeder. It’s hiding peanuts there. Trying to be stealthfull, it’s anything but!

A Stellar’s Jay (Calypte anna). This guy is the peanut bandit.  These guys have been prominent in my post lately.  Sorry, but I just can help it.  I love them.  They are such characters!


Another Stellar’s

Here’s my buddy the Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) with todays antics. I was sitting on our deck this morning. This juvenile Jay was snooping around in the trees. We put several peanuts on the rail of the deck. Within minutes it was on the rail and away with the peanuts! At the time I was sitting on the deck about 8 feet away! I love these guys!
