This Canada Jay lives in northern forests year-round and rears their chicks in the dark of winter. Highly curious and always on the lookout for food, Canada Jays eat just about anything, from berries to small animals. During summer they hoard food in trees to sustain themselves through bleak winters. Small pockets of Grey Jays may be found in the Adirondacks. This one is hand carved from basswood with a jackknife and meticulously painted with acrylics.
