It’s also right in the middle of the San Bernardino forest and is home of many animals and plants.

In my previous post, I featured a lazy squirrel relaxing in the sun. Here I’d like to feature a local bird that is just beautiful: the Stellar Jay. I’ve never seen any Stellar jay birds in San Diego, just blue jays, but there are tons of Stellar Jays in Idyllwild. In the pictures below, they were just standing on a tree right behind my cottage.

Here’s a photo of the female Stellar Jay bird:

They really are beautiful birds but they have quite a feisty character. I saw them attack squirrels and chipmunks without hesitation to keep them away from the area they were feeding on. And they’re pretty loud too!
