Western Scrub Jay

Today I had the fortune of spotting one of these guys:

Thanks to http://www.whatbird.com for this image.

Seattle is their most northern region, and while not especially rare, they are fairly uncommon.
They are known for hoarding and burying brightly colored objects.
Thanks to my brother Houston for helping with the identification.
