Lavskrika - Perisoreus infaustus - Siberian Jay
NF Photo 110615 Ånnsjön, Jämtland

This little guy was a very nice acquaintance. It was not afraid of people. It found us and followed us. And for once, it was not hard to get good shots.  This spices is known to steal your lunch. So, as we arrived at the lookout tower the bird arrived too. And, like magic, so did a lot of sandwiches. Of course the bird was happy steeling all ham it could get.

This is from the trip to the mountains,  in northern Sweden, I did in June. It belongs to the crow family and is a new spieces to my birdlist.

  9. It seems to be quite a small bird. Nice that is so friendly, a free lunch is a great inducement. A pretty little bird and you have captured it so very well.
