Perisoreus infaustus, Siberian Jay, Lavskrike. 28cm.

Siberian Jay
A rare, but approachable and curious, resident in the higher conifer forests around the mountains.

They usually nest in pine trees preferably adorned with beard lichen.

They eat pine seeds, insects and berries and store excess foods by glueing bits together with saliva and hiding them under bark for the winter. They will also take sandwich scraps. The male and female are alike.
