Here is a gray jay (Perisoreus canadensis) eating out of one of our hands in the mountains of Larimer County, Colorado. In the Colorado mountains they are usually found in forested areas at 10,000 feet (3,048 m) and higher. The gray jay is known for not being shy about requesting food, and lives off its food caches in the winter. This picture was taken on October 5, 2015.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
