Whiskey Jack on the wing

I love Canada jays.  They go by a couple of names (well I guess we like to call them by a few names) – I like Whiskey Jack and Canada jay more than gray jay but those are just my own preferences.  Some people see them as mischievous camp robbers.  I don’t.  For me, they exemplify companionship as I always flitting around in pairs.   I found this one in a tree and waited until it flew off towards the call of its partner.

    I don’t know what a whisky jack sounds like but the white throated sparrow is one with a beautiful voice that I am hearing a lot right now One of the comments to you might need a reply like that from you🌞

  5. Nice post. I have been looking up birds lately (to see who keeps singing by my window) and this is one I’ve never heard of.
