Steller's Jays  
I have so many photographs of a variety of birds from Rivendell, but Steller's Jays need their own post. First, they are the most visible inhabitants of the place and second, they put on the best show for photographs.

Steller's Jay

The young fledgling is begging for food. Young birds sit low and flap their wings rapidly like this one is doing, if they want to be fed.

Looks like the trick is working for the fledgling

Yay! I notice baby is being fed the seeds we scatter about!

Great photos, my good friend. :-D

Yep, this was right below the Rivendell board and the seed box! :)

Most birds that need to fly leave the nest when they can fly properly and they are almost as big as their parents.
