Steller's Jay

The Steller's Jay in a member of the crow family and is a large and is the western equivalent of the eastern Blue Jay in temperament and behavior. We have a couple show up every year as does my daughter on the other side of town closer to the hills. They come in looking for the feeders with black oiled sunflower seeds. They have been seen on the pine cone feeders too. They are large and noisy but beautiful. The Finches and the Steller's Jays are about the only birds we get here with brilliant color.

2002 - this year we have a pair nesting in our fir trees in the front yard. This is the first time we've had a resident pair.
