[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Stellar's Jay at Cameron Lake was looking to see if we had any food he could steal. Stellar's Jay is the provincial bird of British Columbia. The Stellar's Jay is approximately 29cm long, they feed on nuts, berries and insects. During the winter they are often seen at bird feeders. This photo has been cropped, mostly on the right to off center him.

Hi Rick,
I rember Steller's Jay years ago in the Sierra Nevadas of California years ago. I didn't have a camera then, so it's nice to see your sharp and well presented shot showing it in its environment.
TFS, regards, Ivan
