Default Angry Bird

I think this is a Raven. He was quite far away. I am glad i caught him with his mouth open.

It is a Steller's Jay - much smaller than a Raven, but just as noisy for its size!

It was a very large all black bird that squawked like a raven. Its feathers stood up because it was disturbed. I do not thik it is a jay though lots of peopl think so. the colors are due to my manipulations in PS trying to get detail in the feathers. Thank you for commenting.

I don't know what kind of bird this is, but's it's neither a Crow nor a Raven. The beak is completely different from either of those two birds, including all sub-species.

The beak certainly resembles that of a Jay. Are you that sure that's it's a Stellars Jay?
