Jay - A First For My Garden !

Today I saw a Jay in my garden for the first time ever.  I only had time for a brief glimpse (no oak trees or acorns here)  but it was unmistakable - a largish bird with a big head and distinctive profile.

As it flew off I clearly saw the brownish back, black tail with a white rump and iridescent blue wing edges that make it easy to identify. There was no chance of getting my camera in time so I just had to make do with a visual sighting.  I do hope it comes back sometime soon.
