Whiskey Jack 07

Description : The Gray Jay stores much of its food. Holes pecked by woodpeckers have been found crammed with bread and other items. The hollow at the top of a broken-off stump is another favourite hoarding place. Mouthfuls of food it does not want to eat at once are turned over until well coated with saliva. The jay then stores these sticky packages on ledges, in crevices or among the needles of evergreens, where they remain well preserved. Sometimes the jay buries them.
