  1. Gray Jay in Cambridge MA?

    Hi - This is about the eastern part of Cambridge Massachusetts. Two days ago, I am 99% certain that I saw a gray jay here. The look, flight, call, all matched -- but I'm outside the range. I've traveled extensively in Canada and I've seen countless gray jays. In the past week, we've also seen here: Red Tail Hawk (newly confirmed by others), bald eagle on the Mystic River in Medford (also confirmed), dark-eyed junco and a white-breasted nuthatch (common in the western part of the city, 2 miles from here, but NEVER here). Sorry I don't have a photo. Location approx 100 yards north of this point: N42.368417, W71.099790 Any thoughts as to why? And is it possible that I saw a gray jay? Thanks!
  2. Hi all, happy to have found this forum, just what I need! I recently returned from West USA road trip and whenever I had the chance I also took snapshots of birds... but now I need to identify them I have one book about west USA birds which is nice, but not of much help always (easy to identify Steller's Jay, but most are more problematic). I will post the photos in this topic as I go through them - first one is this white-gray bird, about same size as white wagtail that is common in Europe (looks quite similar too, but no black crown). Location: Echo Lake Park along the Mount Evans Scenic Byway. What could it be? Regards, Peter
  3. Spent Last week at Warm Lake Idaho about 30 miles east of Cascade, ID. I did the Bird Study Merit Badge with a group of 8 Boy Scouts. We had Steller's Jays and what I am pretty sure is this Gray Jay in camp quite a bit. This Gray Jay is a lifer for me and now I can use this photo for my profile. More questions to follow about other birds we found and trying to ID. But for now please verify I really got a photo of my "name sake" .
  4. This short report covers a week of birding in Vail, Colorado during the second week of February, 2014. On most days, the birding was incidental while skiing. Yes, I wear my binoculars while alpine skiing. Who doesn't? One day of birding included several hours of hiking along Gore Creek. The trip total was 21 species. Vail sits at 8150' elevation along I-70 West of Denver. The front-side peaks reach 11250' elevation, and several good birds were only observed near the peaks. In Vail village, a nice trail follows Gore Creek for several miles. Following the creek yielded 7 American Dippers, three Townsend's Solitaires, groups of 25+ Pine Siskins, a mix of Black-capped and Mountain Chickadees, a Stellar's Jay or two, and family groups of Black-billed Magpies. To a Floridian, I don't understand why this Belted Kingfisher stayed in the mountains. The fishing has to be a little easier further South. Up the slopes, the species count decreased. Groups of 100+ Pine Siskins flew through the evergreens. Several groups of 3-5 Red Crossbills worked the pine cones. One small group of Pine Grosbeaks was observed. The Gray Jays hung out near the food shops at the peaks - slackers. Mountain Chickadees could be heard through the forest. A few Common Ravens and one Bald Eagle were around, too. The only expected species that I missed was Cassin's Finch. Even though the mountains are a low-yield birding trip, it was fun to mix in some birding while skiing.
  5. Gray Jay

    This is not really the best picture in the history of WhatBird, but I am sooooo excited about my newest life bird that I am going to post it anyway. Gray Jay seen in Corner Brook, NL, Canada a few weeks ago (March 2012). It was so fluffy and cute - and not shy at all.
