I finally got a picture of a Gray Jay this week. My grandfather passed away last week so I went for a drive a few days ago to get my mind of things. It was perfect timing as I came across five Gray Jays all within the same area.
I had only ever found a Gray Jay once up until then and with five around, I had plenty of chances to get a decent picture. As I kept driving, there was a Ruffed Grouse right beside the road since it was so mild out. I didn't even have to get out of my car to get a picture of it.
I have started the year of well finding 28 different species so far. I ended the year at 162 so my goal will to find more than that this year!
