Steller's Jay

The Steller's Jay (Scientific name - Cyanocitta stelleri) is the Provincial Bird of British Columbia. They can be noisy and very pesky and often are found scavenging around parks and campsites. They are found mainly along the West Coast of North America and into the Rocky Mountains and sometimes as far as the Great Plains.  

The head is black/dark grey and the remainder of the body is blue.

The top photo was taken near Shannon Falls, Squamish, B.C. in August 2013, the bottom photos were taken in my backyard in Abbotsford, B.C. in October 2013.
