I was surprised to find this California Scrub-jay on South Harney Road
west of the Narrows store in Harney County.  It's a long way from the
Burns population.  We looked carefully for Woodhouse's field marks but
nothing seemed to fit.  Bad lighting made the bird look very dark.  The
photo below is lightened in photoshop.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
