Colorado Gray Jay

Officially known as a Canada Jay, the bird is also known as a "camp robber." However, there are no camps to rob in the Rocky Mountains during an autumn snow. Although the Gray Jay can fluff up its dense plumage and give the impression of large size, it is actually one of the smallest jays in the world. In addition to the once official ‘Canada Jay,’ there are, meat-bird, camp robber, venison-hawk, moose-bird, gorby and, most notable of all, ‘whiskeyjack’.
