Autumn Whiskey Jack
I love Gray Jays, also called Whiskey Jacks, and found a pair foraging for stray sides on a path in Kananaskis on the weekend. You will almost never see a lone jay, they are always found in a pair – I like that. Here, I caught this little one in mid-flight as it flew off a branch to the ground.

In Northwestern Ontario they are also known as camp robbers. While having a breakfast I have often had my toast stolen.

I did not know them by that name but have definitely had some robberies.
