It was difficult to confirm this, but I believe this is a Steller Jay. They are the only new world Jay to use mud to build their nest. I really didn’t think I captured the photo. I saw him take off, and just started snapping photos. I found this in my pictures when I got back to our cabin.
Prints are available for many of the photos on this site on canvas, metal or glass. They are stunning and you can purchase them for a wall at home. Click the link or the ‘prints and such’ tab.
