Birds of the Grand Canyon - Western Scrub Jay
Hey look, it's a blue bird of some sort! A Blue Jay? Ok, this is a Western Scrub Jay. He reminded me a little of the Mexican Jay's that we see on Kitt Peak, though not quite as blue and not quite as agressive looking for handouts.... 130mm 1/500 f/5.7 400
This little guy moved around a lot, giving me some variety in shots. This image was taken at 300mm focal length with an exposure of 1/750 seconds at f/5.7 and ISO 400.
