Sure, those too. But we have definitely have had Blue Jays. I have spent about half my years east of the Rockies (well east), so am very familiar with the species. Like I said, it hadn’t occurred to me they were considered scarce here (according to the map on the link you sent).

Hi Julie, to be sure we're talking about the same bird, do you also see Steller's Jays and California Scrub-Jays out there? Thanks.

I had no idea they weren’t normal for this area. I’ve seen them periodically out on Oak Hill Rd in Wilbur. Will have to keep a closer eye out!
<<Yes, a real Blue Jay, ... is coming to a feeder out Lookingglass Road area from Roseburg. The homeowner contacted me and I saw the bird this morning. They don't want mobs wandering the area, but if you'd like to go see the bird, email me and I'll pass on the contact information for the homeowner and you can make an appointment to go visit. >>
