The Curious Gray Jay

The past couple of days, a cute gray bird has perched on the fence outside my office. I’ve never seen him visit the feeder in the front, he just sits on this fence and surveys his surroundings. Studying the grainy pictures taken through the window and screen, I suspect he might be a Gray Jay. Although described as “curious” this bird who has been visiting doesn’t seem very curious about me – he flies away every time I sneak out for a decent picture. Here’s a Gray Jay in felt form who is sure not to fly away.

    Two gray jays swooped down and sat very near me in the woods one day. I was so tickled I could hardly sit still.
    I love this pattern. I’ve made your robin, chickadee, nuthatch, magpie and loon. Gray jay’s next!
