I see these birds quite often Camilla. Such a lovely bird, especially in flight when you see the blue flash..

They’re quite common over here as well, and I love that blue streak. 🙂

I like Jays – they’re usually quite brash over here. And noisy. And mainly blue, like your Jay’s wing bar. Beautiful shot!

Thanks Lynn! I *wish* we had Blue Jays over here, I’ve never seen one in real life.. Last year I visited WA and saw Stellar’s Jay, they were really cool too 🙂

You were a long way from home! If you come this way again let me know. The Steller’s jays are very amusing – they always make a racket and draw one’s attention, and they always have an alarmed look about them. We have a standard square suet feeder – like a little cage that a square suet cake goes in – and every other bird has figured out how to lock their feet onto the cage and feast on the suet, but not “Stella” – Stella flies at it and just cannot grasp it, I don’t know why. Endlessly entertaining!

I will let you know next time! Yes, I’m *sure* it will be a ‘next time’ because I love the area. 🙂

i love the detail on the side feathers, not sure what they are called.The eyes and tope of head are pretty impressive, too.

Very nice picture! It looks 3D, you can almost touch the bird!

Thanks Edwin! I took this picture on my way back from Diemen.. It may look like I was close to the bird, but it was actually quite far away.. No touching! 😉
