Description

10/30/2014 4:45 PM

It was late afternoon and the sun was hitting everything at a steep angle, it had been partly cloudy all day but now it seemed mostly sunny but cool about 60f. I have observed before that in this area all the birds seem to come out in the late afternoon so i made an effort to be available during this time. I was sitting on the edge go a small orchard the fruit growing there on small trees was yellow and i am not familiar with it. I spotted Aphelocoma californica also known western scrub-jays. They seem to be intentionally staying in proximity to each other, one would perch in the tree wile the other moved over the ground pecking at it, then the one on the ground would fly up to the tree and the one on the tree would take the others spot on the ground, this trading of places happened 10 -15 times. I assume they where eating something but when I tried to move closer they flew away. A careful inspection of the ground did not reveal anything to my eyes.
Later on my walk home I obseverd another pair of scrub-jays kind of leapfrogging up and down a tree. I wonder i scrub-jays always move in Pairs?

Description from Wikipedia

Corvidae is a cosmopolitan family of oscine passerine birds that contains the crows, ravens, rooks, jackdaws, jays, magpies, treepies, choughs and nutcrackers. The common English names used are corvids (more technically) or the crow family (more informally), and there are over 120 species. The genus Corvus, including the jackdaws, crows and ravens, makes up over a third of the entire family.
