...What a hair-raising 'do, eh?!
Finally, photos of the Steller's jay! Like other jays, normally they don't stand still and are real skittish...my folks have this pair nesting in a neighbor's tree and they come to my folks' yard a few times a day. I was sitting at my laptop yesterday when this fellow/gal landed on the shrub outside the sliding glass door. I snuck outside...the other jay had joined the first...and I managed to get a few photos before they flew off.
