Gray Jay eating a Hairy mole at Algonquin Park Sept 2016

These photos are for record only.  It wss a very exciting find at Algonquin.  A gray jay was eating a hairy mole.  A few of us were watching him and able to grab a few photos.  All information and data was sent to Dan who does Gray Jay studies. 
This is not something you see every day.

The left overs which caught my attention.  Please look closely at the foot and you can see the teeth of the mole.


The gray jay was gapping after eating because they are apparently horrible and strong.

  2. I agree Linda. Interesting the gray Jay Bandera had never seen it. Knew of it but never witnessed. So feeling lucky plus never seen wither the shrew or mole before
