      I stand by one time experience at Golden Gate Park's North Lake standing and watching/hearing a scrub jay scream like a red-shouldered hawk. It may not be properly documented but it sure was unforgettable

      > Fri Sep 7, 2012 1:46 pm (PDT) . Posted by: "Floyd Hayes" floyd_hayes On behalf of the Redbud Audubon Society, I produced a 17-minute video documenting the life history of Western and Clark's Grebes on Clear Lake, including courtship, hybridization, mating, nesting and hatching. The video also documents various anthropogenic and natural threats to the grebes, and highlights our attempts at educating the public. I used a tiny point-and-shoot camera for all of the video and edited it with free software that doesn't separate sound and video, so it's not all that spiffy, but I think you'll enjoy it anyway.

      > P.S. The consensus was that they don't imitate red-tailed or red-shouldered hawks. I find a lot of literature on the net that ascribes traits to western scrub-jays that properly belong only to other jays (mainly Steller's, blue, and Florida scrub).
