The deceptively cute Gray Jay is one of the most intrepid birds in North America, living in northern forests year-round and rearing chicks in the dark of winter. Highly curious and always on the lookout for food, Gray Jays eat just about anything, from berries to small animals. They may even land on your hand to grab a raisin or peanut. During summer they hoard food in trees to sustain themselves through bleak winters.

Taken in Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada

    Honestly, never knew there were gray jays! Loved your description, and thought how closely they resemble blue jays in temperament. Very proactive in going after what they want and need! But I love them most of the time, except when they are squawking at me to throw some feed out! Wonderful capture, too, of course…since I’ve seen a lot of quality photography with your name on it!
