Sitting in Estes: Steller’s jay

Last Lent I did a series called “Sitting,” just observing what was happening in my backyard. I sat earlier this month in Estes Park, Colorado. Here’s what I saw:

At Alberta Falls, a black squirrel stole a girl’s energy bar, and the Steller’s jay took off after the squirrel. It didn’t get the energy bar, but it did get some of my Craisins.
