At Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs today I saw quite a few of these birds hanging out by the picnicers. I didn’t recognize them and couldn’t find them in the bird book. Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?

It looks like it may be a western scrub jay to us.. Beautifully captured! Great details!
I believe you may be right! I looked up western scrub jays and it sure looks a lot like the birds I saw. Thank you for identifying it and thank you for commenting!
no idea.. but wow, it is a gorgeous bird!
Thank you, Josh! They really are lovely to look at. You can’t tell from this picture but their backs are a very vivid blue.
Incredibly beautiful…wonderful colours.
Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for the feature! I know this is a bit belated, but I haven’t been on RB much lately, too busy. But the feature is much appreciated.
Congratulations on your fabulous feature in The Birds Group!…..laura
