  1. The cerulean and sapphire glory of these birds cannot be denied. Common enough, but a delight to the eyes. A beautiful image Gary. Posted 7 months ago

The Steller's jay is a jay native to western North America, closely related to the blue jay found in the rest of the continent, but with a black head and upper body. It is also known as the long-crested jay, mountain jay, and pine jay. It is the only crested jay west of the Rocky Mountains. While it does not have as prominent a crest as the Blue Jay it can be found west of the Rockies especially in south east British Columbia.

The Steller's jay shows a great deal of regional variation.. more
