Clark's nutcrackers

Nucifraga columbiana


Two grey-bodied birds, 6-10 inches long, with black wings and bills.


Pacific Northwest montane forest.


Spotted flitting about in lakeshore trees near East Lake Campground in Newberry Crater National Volcanic Monument in central Oregon. Observed and imaged at a distance, so size/length is a guess.

Thanks, Forest Dragon. Glad to know you agree with my guess at the ID. I'll edit the spotting to reflect an ID of Clark's Nutcracker.
