I generally have a hard time getting a decent photograph of a Steller’s Jay because they are quick to hide when I get near. This one didn’t seem to be bothered by me taking photographs of it. The Steller’s Jay has several different sounds. Usually I know they’re around by a squawking sounds. But they also do a very good mimic of a red-tailed hawk. You can hear some of their calls here: Steller’s Jay calls.
