I had one in the neighbors tree 2 days ago between 76th pl ne and 77th pl ne. And a few days before that, saw one on a power line around 47th and 80th.

There was a house on the south side of Jennings Park with feeders. The owners said they regularly had scrub-jays. After they sold their house, the feeders were taken down and we were not able to find the scrub-jays in that particular neighborhood in subsequent years. It has been quite a few years since I have participated in that CBC area, but I’m not surprised to hear that the scrub-jays are still being seen around Jennings Park neighborhoods. If I recall correctly, we never counted more than two.
