Do you see what I see?


We were setting up camp and getting dinner ready on Mt. Rainier when I spotted this bird flying to the tree overhead. I forget what it is called but if Katney reads this, she might remind me. It likes to steal food.

A bird that likes to seal food? Can't help you there. Sorry!

I hope you get an answer. You have a good eye.

I echo Tom's comment - I don't know the birds, but those tree stubs and trunks were grand. You should do more of those if you get a chance.

Can't tell, either.

I think it's a gray jay, but it could be a Clark's nutcatcher (or nutcracker). One has a black head and one a gray head and I can never remember which is which. I did positively identify it for a real birder yesterday. He had tentatively identified it and when I said it's either, it confirmed it for him.

They are often known as Camp Robbers. And yes they do steal food. I once had one snatch a strip of bacon from my table while I was cooking the eggs. They are one of the animals which easily becomes habituated to humans when they feed them, causing them to identify people with food and the subsequent assertive begging.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
