Stellar's Jay

    Although Stellar’s Jay (BC’s Provincial Bird) is common throughout most of British Columbia, including the Robson Valley, I rarely see them.  About the only time I spot one at our place is in the fall,  when one hangs around for about a day.  It was on its annual visit the other day that I took this photo.
    They are are really a beautiful bird with its deep blue body coloring that gradually turns into a black head.  It has the typical raucous jay behavior, but despite its extroverted behavior, I always enjoy seeing them and always wish they would hang around our house a bit longer.

My photo-realistic paintings can be seen at:
