California scrub jay

Aphelocoma californica

Description:

This was interesting to watch as a California scrub jay finds a nut from a Joshua Tree and then stores it in another part of the tree (pic 3). The California scrub jay has an amazing memory and stores food like seeds and nuts in caches. This behaviour is well explained in the reference.

Habitat:

Spotted foraging on a Joshua tree at Joshua Tree National Park, California.
