Stellar's Jay

Found this critter hopping between thickets on the shore of Bear Lake. It was quite interested in my son and hopped onto a stone perch much closer to him than your average bird would dare. Then I noticed it had something in its beak, which at the time I thought to be a bit of blue packing tape (I was thinking about nesting materials; didn't consider the month though). Only upon uploading my shots did I realize the critter had discovered a bit of carelessly discarded candy (not ours.)
