Canada Jay (Rocky Mts.) (Perisoreus canadensis capitalis/albescens) (4)
- Reported Jul 20, 2020 18:20 by Sean Cozart
- Anthony Lake, Baker, Oregon
- Map:,-118.231376&ll=44.959388,-118.231376
- Checklist:
- Comments: "What I would call the expected group but can be debated. By
range, the expected subspecies is bicolor with is a part of the Northern
group, however no CAJA I've seen in Oregon have features of this group.
I've compared photos I have here to those I have photographed in Montana
(subspecies capitalis and Rocky Mts. Group), nape is tad darker gray but it
does bot extend to the eye or to the peak of the crown like most Northern
members. I think acknowledgement to the local birders can bring out some
interesting information, and understand how clinal this species really is."
