Do You Like My New Dress?
Ok, I know I see a lot of birds in my yard. I have seen hundreds, if not thousands of Steller's Jay. But this one looks particularly funny! I'm not sure what is going on with her feathers? I know she is young, but her feathers seem to look like a costume to be worn to the Grammy Awards.. She is particularly active, and does lots of hopping around, and has a little dance like she is some sort of a Bower Bird or something. I would say she is really "Shaggy"... hehe..
The Steller's Jay is a striking bird with deep blue and black plumage and a long, shaggy crest. The front of its body is black, and the rear is deep blue. The black extends midway down its back and down its breast. It has faint, dark barring on its wings. Adults have blue vertical 'eyebrows' above each eye. The juvenile appears similar to the adult, but has a slightly browner head and lacks the blue eyebrows of the adult. The inland form has a small white patch over the eye
