Yours truly

Western  Scrub  Jay

(Aphelocoma californica)

   Scrub jays are very common visitors to our back yard, whether the feeder is out or not. We have a pair at the present time (February 2004) and they are probably nesting nearby. Jays are bold, omnivorous, and never still. Although I've never seen one attack a smaller bird, the small ones keep out of their way.
