Seaside Oregon Mystery Bird

Recommended Posts

 This bird was busy preening its breast atop a tree on Saturday morning in Seaside, Oregon, so the fluffy grey breast might not be representative. Any help appreciated.

This is a California Scrub-Jay. Note the large size, long tail, and stout bill. Adults are blue and gray above, have clean gray underparts, and a partial blue necklace.

The similar Woodhouse's Scrub-Jay can be separated by range (it lives further east).
