Stellar’s Jay

The Steller’s Jay (Scientific name: Cyanocitta stelleri) is a jay native to western North America. It is closely related to the Blue Jay found in the eastern part of the American continent. Stellar’s Jay is a large songbird with large head, chunky body, rounded wings, and a long, full tail. The bill is long, straight, and powerful, with a slight hook. It has a prominent triangular crest that often stands nearly straight up from their head. Clicked at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, California in June/2013.
