Steller’s Jay
Cyanocitta stelleri
 (L 11.5" WS 19" WT 3.7 oz)
Del Valle Park
Livermore, CA
The blue jay flies above the ground,
sorcering through the sky.
Watch him go to his nest.
Have you ever seen a blue so blue?
Birds are lucky because they can fly.
All other animals have to
buy their wings or cry.
   (The Blue Jay Poem by Aileen Chin
      Axelrod, age 7-1/2)
Stays west of the Rockies...may breed
with Blue Jays expanding westward.
