For the last few weeks there has been a young Steller's Jay that acts like it wants to be a Hummingbird.
The Scrub Jays and all the other Steller's Jays fly in and land on the suet feeder whenever they want a snack. However, there is one Steller's Jay who does it differently. It flies in and hovers at the feeder, grabs suet and then takes off with it. Sometimes it grabs suet, flies up to the roof to eat it, and then comes back and grabs more suet before leaving. But it always hovers, it never lands on the feeder.
You can see him come to the feeder twice in this video:
