Canada Jay

I encountered a pair of Canada Jays along Sandy Cove Road. They haven't molted yet so their plumage is a little rough. The Canada Jay is the quintessential  "all Canadian" bird. It nests almost exclusively everywhere in Canada and is non migratory. It stashes food in the fall and winter to give its early brood a good start to life.

There were at least five Winter Wrens heard singing and yes the Osprey has returned to the cell tower.
