Stellar’s Jay

These blue birds are very common during the spring and summer. We don’t go a day without seeing them. They can be really loud, one morning I’d moved the bird feeder to try and attract them. At the crack of dawn we had around 25 of them outside the window loudly feasting. It was fun, once, but I’ve stopped buying the food they like for fear they would take over.

Woodpecker

I haven’t figured out exactly what type of woodpecker this is, they are in the trees all around the property. They knock hunks of bark off the trees.
