I would vote STJA. Has a short crisp element to it. I also get that
mimicking in nearby timber, often followed by the slow coarse chatter more
typical of Stellar’s Jay. It catches my attention every time.

But we also have Red-tails that nest nearby each spring and I see daily now
that regularly screech out when flying overhead.
