A camp robber of a different type, this Stellar’s jay (also a corvid) was pretty good at chasing the gray jays around and making sure he had first choice of treats. This was the only decent photo I got of him as he was very skittish and barely landed long enough to snatch a cracker before flying off again. In contrast the gray jays were much more comfortable at hanging around with us at the picnic table.
