The other day my sweetie and I heard this really raucous sound. We finally decided it was a bird and then we saw this fellow out our dining room window. He’s a Stellar’s Jay.

The picture doesn’t do him justice. He was a very striking blue sporting a black mohawk of feathers (it’s called a crest, but he had attitude so mohawk it is).

Then the kitty arrived.

She inched her way up a pole of our snow roof and parked on a beam to watch the bird.

I did say the bird had an attitude, right? Well, here he is teasing the cat by flying and landing just out of reach.
