Plain text indicates the location (see corresponding red arrow) of the animal(s) in image; bold text indicates the basis of the identification of the animal(s).

1 ­– To left of pile (one) and directly behind pile (one).  [Two blue jays: although the pronounced blue of the back side is not readily discernible, the characteristic white throat and black bib are visible in these two head-on views.]

2 ­– In front of pile, facing left.  [Single blue jay: glare of sunlight makes this a challenging view.  Nonetheless, the blue back and tail and lighter side are visible.]

3 ­– In front of pile, facing right. [Single blue jay: once again, bright sunlight provides a challenging image.  Black bib, contrasting white cheeks and darker neck band, and blue on wings are characteristic.]
