Pinyon Jays – Mt Laguna – Mile 19 -sighted 10/8

Pinyon Jays sighted today between 2:15-2:45pm.  New life bird for me! 

Followed trail 1, west from Sunrise Highway, before junction with trail 7, saw and heard flock in small meadow south of trail. The flock of about 200 pinyon jays, were observed from as close distance of 40 yards, for 20 minutes, flock moving around small meadow, up ridge, and then moved north of trail and out of sight. Mostly feeding on ground, sometimes landing in trees.  Plain blue overall, no markings of Scub-Jay and no crest of Steller's Jay.
