Bird Photography Weekly-Steller’s Jay


While I was waiting around to see the Rosy-finches at the Sandia Crest House, there were two Steller’s Jays trying to hog the feeder-typical of jays everywhere, I suppose.  The bullies (said with affection).  One of the Jays, flew over to a tree to contemplate the vista, which was pretty spectacular since it is at 10,678 ft.  You can just see his white forehead marks indicating that he is of the interior west sub-species.  Doesn’t he look contemplative?
