    I posted a shot of the female Crescent Honeyeater a few pages back but lo and behold, this morning the male turned up.

    Their real name is Canada Jay. They are known as the "camp robber" because they are kind of a pest. They will fly by and take food from your hand if you're not careful. This past weekend, a couple of them landed on our campsite table and one tried to fly off with a plastic spoon. I'm a bird lover as these guys are really close to being considered a nuisance. Stellar's Jays have that reputation too but Gray Jays are worse.

    "Grey jays adapt to human activity in their territories and are known to approach humans for food, inspiring a list of colloquial names including 'lumberjack', 'camp robber', and 'venison-hawk.'"

    Great shot Jeff. :icon_salut: I notice that the UK Nuthatch is just a little different than the ones here on the east coast of the US.
