Steller Jay

MEET ONE OF MY FREQUENT VISITORS...A Steller Jay. This large beautiful bird is closely related to a Blue Jay but sports striking black plumage on it's crown.
Not many birds nest at this high altitude. I do see a lot of Mountain Finches, and much to my husband's chagrin, we have some nesting Northern Flickers. A woodpecker is not a bird you want to attract when living in a log home!
