Song Sparrows are common throughout our region. They stay low to the ground in shrub cover most of the time. Their song is beautiful and instantly recognizable once you know it.

Steller’s Jay

A very tame Steller’s Jay in our backyard. It appeared to be sunning itself, trying different locations and positions.

Spread eagled on the back fence… or rather “spread jayed.”
