As common as Scrub Jays are, I would have never guessed how difficult they are to photograph. They spook at the least little thing. I finally got one to sit long enough to get a good shot. It was sitting on a bench along a path at TRNWR. It's interesting how it is holding one leg up. I read somewhere that birds don't have a lot of feeling in their feet so cold doesn't bother them much, so I am not sure why it is holding it up like that. Besides, it was a nice warm day.
