Clark's Nutcracker

The Clark's Nutcracker (Scientific name - Nucifraga columbiana) is a bird in the crow family and found in the mountains of Western Canada and the U.S.  They are often found in pine forests as they feed on seeds from pine cones. They are also often found in scenic areas begging food from tourists.
They are pale grey birds with black wings. The tail is black in the center and white along either side. They have a long straight and sharp tipped bill.

Photos were taken at Manning Park, British Columbia in May 2013.
