Pinyon Jay

On a recent trip to Sisters, OR, I enjoyed watching Pinyon Jays come to the bird feeders at our hotel. These are fun birds, always in a group and always calling.

The throat is the only part of this species that isn’t blue.

This profile shows off the bird’s long bill, handy for harvesting pine nuts when the bird isn’t slumming it at the feeder.
