Blue Jay
Cyanocitta cristata
Humboldt County, CA
19 March 2005


The bird was originally found in January by Keenan Hinz at his home in Redwood Valley, California, east of Arcata, above Highway 299. About two weeks later a family friend was able to identify his find as a Blue Jay. On the 19th of March, 2005 when this video was taken the bird was still frequenting the yard feeder. In the off and on driving rain, the bird came to the feeder to then quickly disappear. This sequence is from the last and only visit videotaped before things quieted down for the afternoon.
