A jay in my garden - made with my new 6D and 70-200mm 4.0 IS @ 200mm f/4.5.
What kind of Jay is that Pkin?
This is what would translate directly from Danish 'Skovskade' to English 'Forest Jay'.
Correct name will be: Eurasian Jay (Garrulus glandarius)
See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasian_Jay

This was noted by Sporgon, too. Thank you.

This jay is rather shy, but as I feed regularly in my garden I have them as guests almost daily, and taking care to move slowly I can phtograph them through an open window.

I hereby add another one, that I got recently with my new kit (6D):
Kernebideren = Hawfinch (Coccothraustes coccothraustes)
aka 'The flying Nutcracker'
Keen amateur. Current kit: Canon 6D since April 2013. 24-105 f/4, 70-200 f/4 IS, 50mm f/1.4, 100 macro f/2.8 L IS, 1.4x II TC, 16-35 f/2.8 (I), Tamron 150-600mm. Canon 420 EX flash.
