Mountain Blue Jays

A Mountain Blue Jay, and friends, have been landing in our backyard over the past few weeks.  Their vivid blue color speaks out against the drab brown and yellow grasses that are poking up from the remainders of our snow.  I'm hungry for their color, such a stark contrast from the white I am used to seeing, that my eyes follow wherever they fly.

On a drive up the valley along the Wind River mountains they zig-zag and fly across the road.  So many!  Even when we get a spring snow storm they stay, unalarmed by the sharp change in temperature and the ice that gathers in the corner of my window.
