Saw this beautiful bird today, preening itself, possibly looking for a mate, or it may have puffed its feathers against the cold wind. I think it is a Blue Jay, but someone more familiar with North American birds can educate this British visitor to Canada!
I know one thing about this bird; it can be very noisy. When I first saw it, it had an acorn in its mouth and seemed to be proudly displaying it. But by the time I got the camera out, the bird had lost it.
