Siberian Jay

One of the main aims of my trip to Sweden were Siberian Jays. Siberian Jays are very secretive birds, flying quietly around the taiga forest in family groups in search for food. This makes them hard to find. Despite their orange plumage they are very hard to see, as they blent in perfectly with the trees. Around the Naturum in Fulufjallet they regularly put out some food for them, therefor they often come there to check it out. This gave us a good opportunity to take some pictures of these elusive birds. Here a picture of one on the ground. Of the 3 sessions I had with them, only the last was with sunlight. So almost all my good pictures are taken during that session.
