Bill, it is a pretty scattered distribution until you get to the middle of the state - about the latitude of Reno. There seems to be a population around Elko, well east of us. Here are two eBird maps since I wasn't able to copy them all in one. None of the records from Sheldon Refuge have documentation. Two of them are listed with an "X" so the observer seemed to think they should be there. If this were Oregon I would suggest that the reviewers look carefully at any submitted for that area. Since the bird is common in some parts of Nevada, that probably isn't a big deal to them.

Since a discussion on the jays distribution has been brought up, just how far south from the Oregon border is it regular? Reno? Can one assume Lake, Harney and Malhuer counties are the obvious areas to search for one?
