Rachelle and the Whiskey Jack

By Jonathan Timar

I find the Grey Jay to be an incredibly fascinating bird. Also known as the “Whiskey Jack” or Canada Jay these little guys are incredibly inquisitive. It doesn’t matter how far into the back country away from civilization you are, these birds will show up and beg for food.

And how could you resist them? I guess I have a soft spot for a wild animal that is willing to perch on your shoulder and eat out of your hand.

We encountered this one while back country camping at Manning Park.
