Steller’s Jay

Steller’s Jay  This guy was just having a good time hanging out in the evergreen trees at about the 8000 foot level on our hike.  My bird knowledge is limited, but I think it’s a Steller’s Jay.  Looks a bit like a Blue Jay, but clearly, is not.  He did not seem terribly upset with our passing through his territory so a few simple clicks were easily captured.  Again, the Nikon 1 V1 with the 70-300 lens made the click.  There’s nothing like a good, light camera on a hike uphill.
