Re: Scrub Jay in Nest Box
- After looking at a bunch of Western Bluebird and Scrub and Stellar Jay
pictures, I think the likely hood is that I was seeing one adult male in
full breeding plumage and an adult female and/or one or two hatchlings. I
just don't remember every seeing a Western Bluebird with such bright and
deep blue plumage before.
As to my expertise - somewhere between rank amateur and experienced
observer; I don't claim any great degree of observation. Of course, I
should have taken photos but the maggots and other critters discouraged me
from going home for my camera and returning.
