Steller's Jay

With our waterfall's restored functionality and a few bird feeders around our property we have be blessed to have some really wonderful visitors.  This is one of 3 Steller Jays that have become regulars.  It is so much fun to watch them wiggle the peanuts out of the wire.  Some of them are really talented and can get the peanuts out while leaving the shell in the feeder.

This guy turned upside down to get a better angle right after I snapped this shot.  I wish I would have been quick enough to get the inverted position recorded because it was something straight of Cirque de Soleil. 

You can almost see the wheels turning as he thinks about how to get those nuts ...
