Our son and girlfriends daughter at a local fair, going into the house of mirrors.
Here's the South American cousin of Casey's bird, the Plush Crested Jay
Hola mi canadiense primo!

Definitely not a bird!

Okay, Susan/Alisande, you have can no longer say you've never seen a swallowtail laying eggs or a stellar jay. And all from the comforts of your home. How 'bout that. :-)
Nicole, what kind of bird is that?
I love the colors and long tail!
kat_wa, I believe that is a black-billed magpie. They are in the same family as jays, crows & kingfishers. They are about the length of crows, but with a much longer tail. Quite striking, aren't they.

Here is a Magpie and a Raven that were soliciting food from a line of cars waiting to enter the Whittier tunnel south of Anchorage, Alaska. It was just the two of them. They were pretty entertaining.
Yep....kathleeca....that's what it is. It's a baby. He was very trusting and let me get about a foot away from him. :0)
