Western Scrub Jay

This Western Scrub Jay was much more cooperative that most. I almost missed out on this opportunity as I was walking away from having photographed a Western Kingbird at Paramount Ranch when I decided to go back for some more. I didn't get any more Kingbird photos, but I did get some of my best of this Scrub Jay.


  1. Great photos! I see Florida Scrub Jays often, the Western, however, appears to be a brighter blue. Very beautiful!

    1. This was a particularly bright Scrub Jay and the lighting was also excellent (at least to me as I'm used to Oregon clouds and rain this time of year :-))
