Just a little side note to my bike ride to Georgetown. Just as I was starting to head back north I saw a Shrub Jay foraging. I wasn’t completely sure at first after all It’s not like I have my copy of Peterson’s on me at all times. But I got a good enough look at it to be ninety percent sure and be able to confirm my identification when I got back home.
I’m not completely sure this was a lifer for me as I might have seen one in the Grand Canyon (unless what I saw back then was a Pinyon Jay.) Either way it was pretty cool. I knew they were around here but I wasn’t completly sure where the border of their northern most territory was (my neighborhood is mostly Stellar country.)
