is that a captive bird?
I posted a shot of the female Crescent Honeyeater a few pages back but lo and behold, this morning the male turned up.
Never seen a Gray Jay before...........
i never seen or heard of them.. beautiful........
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.
wow great info.. i looked them up and they did not say anything negative about them.. they did say they are not endangered..lol.. they are very pretty.. and glad you posted this one and now we know..
"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.'"
Wonderful thread & superb captures by experienced members here. My contribution to this thread, hoping it will meet the standards here.
This is a scaly-breasted munia, from Mysuru, India
Great shot Jeff. I notice that the UK Nuthatch is just a little different than the ones here on the east coast of the US.
