I call this Mr. Blue Jay we are now old friends.  He let me grab this shot a few weeks ago.  Took about 3 months to get up this close.  This was shot with a Canon 5D Mark III and the great 135mm L lens.

What bird is the state bird for 7 different US states?  (the most of any US state) 

spoiler....Northern Cardinal

(second place - Western Meadowlark)

a N. Cardinal on a country road eyeing a dead worm. 

FYI...when you see a cardinal, look around, it's spouse is almost always very near.
