One of the types of birds that visit the garden is the stunning western scrub-jay. This elusive bird doesn’t show its face all the time and appears to be very quick and covert about its feeding times.

With the birds outside, especially the western scrub-jay, I have learned to have my camera on the ready. I was fortunate enough to have our camera on hand as I was doing tasks in the garden.
