Steller's Jay

Cyanocitta stelleri

This common backyard bird was named for Georg Steller, a naturalist on a Russian ship and the first European to see the species in 1741, in what is now Alaska. Listen to their vocalizations: they can mimic other birds such as the Red-tailed Hawk and Bald Eagle.

Marymoor Park

Puget Trough

The 640-acre Marymoor Park is worth a visit any time of year. Migrating songbirds in the willows and cottonwoods are a possibility now, as are wintering waterfowl on Lake Sammamish. Look for sparrow flocks near the Lot D parking lot.
