Blue Jay - Bird Visitor Log
It is hard to see, but inside of that little red circle is a Blue Jay. Adding him to our [Bird Visitor Log] here on the blog. And despite the zoom'd photo above being not so clear, it was *very* clearly a Blue Jay when I laid eyes on him. The funny part? That's exactly how the passage in our bird watching Field Guide book starts the Blue Jay entry:
"Nothing else comes close to looking like the Blue Jay. It is instantly recognizable to almost everyone in Illinois -- bird-watcher or not."
