photographing and learning about wildlife
This bird is mostly grey, with white underbellies, and white and black on the head. The video I have is better than the photos. The video is linked on the right hand side of this page.
Forest area - Wikipedia says "The vast majority of gray jays live where there is a strong presence of one or more of black spruce (Picea mariana), white spruce (P. glauca), Engelmann spruce (P. engelmanni), jack pine (Pinus banksiana), or lodgepole pine (P. contorta)."
This is the first time I have ever seen this bird on my property. I live in a forested area. These birds show up every morning, when I feed my chickens. They wait for the chickens to walk away, and then they finish the left over scratch.
