In the May Valley / Newcastle area (Cougar Mountain) I'm seeing Scrub Jays 
on a regular basis.  A real twist is that I'm also seeing Gray Jays both 
along the ridges and right in May Valley almost weekly.  Stellar's are still 
the predominant Jay species - but the mix is very bizarre.  A bird primarily 
extending its range north, a bird primarily from higher mountain habitats, 
and our normal good friends.  I had all three Jays eating peanuts from my 
fence rail last week - within an hour of each other.  Now all I need is a 
Blue Jay to show up!

Good Birding
