This photo depicts a classic pose of a Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata). It clearly demonstrates its inquisitive behavior. Their calls include a repeated harsh, raucous “jeer” sometimes followed by a ringing “kway-kweedle”.

This photo was taken in Shirley’s Bay, ON (Canada) with a Canon EOS 40D. This image was slightly cropped, sharpened and colour balanced in AP.
