Blue Jay in the Backyard

A quintessential backyard bird seen on day one of the Backyard Bird Count.

Images taken through a window, as are most of my Blue Jay pictures. It is hard to sneak up on a Blue Jay. Like all corvids, Blue Jays are always alert and aware of their surroundings.

I love the black trim on his face. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, "the black bridle across the face, nape, and throat varies extensively and may help Blue Jays recognize one another."

This one is a little blurry, but I like how it highlights the blue and black on his back.
