Additional Information

Comments: I don't know if this is going to be laughable to ornithologists, but I was amazed to see a Blue Jay in Colorado. If I've taken up your time in error, my apologies; if I've given you a chuckle, good deal! And if by chance I've provided some useful information, I'm delighted!
