Artist's Description

Taken in Bend, Oregon during a visit with my sister with a Canon Powershot SX10IS

Stellar’s Jay is most common in forested areas of the Rocky Mountains and Pacific coast, It is bolder than Blue Jay, regularly approaching campsites to steal food. The two species sometimes sometimes hybridize where ranges meet. The subspecies macrolopha (Southern Rockies) has a larger crest and different head markings than birds of the nominate group (Pacific coast, Northern Rockies).

VOICE Dozens of vocalizations; foraging birds a raspy, rapid fire sh-ksh-ksh-ksh-ksh—k and a drawn out, descending shhhhhhhrrrrr

INTERESTING FACTS

  • The Steller’s Jay and the Blue Jay are the only New World jays that use mud in the construction of their nests.
  • Although the reason is not known, they are occasionally observed far outside their normal range. Most of these far-flung individuals appear to be young birds.
  • They form flocks outside of the nesting season and often fly across clearings in single file.
  • A group of jays has many collective nouns, including a “band”, “cast”, “party”, and “scold” of jays.
