Bird #99 — Gray Jay

perisoreus (to heap up food) canadensis (of Canada)

McNaughton, Wisconsin — West Spider Lake

We threw the remains of a turkey on the ice on West Spider Lake. Our intent was to attract Gray Jays.

Two days later, our plan worked.  I watched the birds flying down to the carcass, grabbing a little piece of meat, then flying off down the shore.  A minute or so later, back they came for more.
