Your photos are perfect. They even seem to capture the birds' personality.

The Steller Jay is beautiful, and it has such a snappy look about it. I saw my first ones last year in the Rocky Mountains and they were really great characters to observe. Have a great week Jill~

I would love to see a golden crowned kinglet. I don't think we have them down here in So. Cal. Shall have to consult my bird book.

Both of the birds are very pretty, but the Blue Jay is the best.

We have several stellar jays that have hung around here for years. I have yet to get them to pose for a shot!
