Stellar’s

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!


Perfect Pose

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!

At Ease

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!


In for a Bath

Here’s a special visitor to our birdbath. Listed as Rare in this area, this Western Scrub Jay ( Aphelocoma californica) quite enjoyed its bath! Time for some suet and it was off again. We had it here a couple of time this past summer and I’m very pleased to see it back. Known to hang out around the Aldergrove Athletic Park. We are only a couple of houses from there!

Scruffy

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!
