I see jays often. In the mountains I see Stellar Jays, sometimes even Gray Jays. In town, I always see Scrub Jays.
What I don’t see is Blue Jays. It’s not that they aren’t out here, normally they aren’t. But during the winter a Blue Jay will show up…but never when and where I go to see it.
I knew that if I was to ever get a photo of a Blue Jay, I would have to head east. So in late April I was in Illinois and I looked and looked for a Blue Jay so I could shoot it (with my Canon of course).
On one of my last days there, I was at my mom’s place and there, in the trees, eyeballing her feed station, was a Blue Jay.
