Plush-crested Jay (Bolivia)
« on: December 09, 2012, 10:34:19 AM »

While at one of the hotels I stayed at in Bolivia I noticed an area where two species of Jays seemed to be hanging around. Sure enough they had been placing fruit out for the birds. I'm always happy to find feeding stations so I was excited to set up on these guys. As it turned out this proved to be my only opportunity to do a feeder setup in Bolivia.

To see a bit more about the setup check out my video blog - http://youtu.be/4gqR5KuuJmg

Glenn, thanks for posting your picture of the Plush-crested Jay.

Also really enjoyed the Bolivia Video Blog with your commentary about your experiences during your month in the Andes!

This is getting repetitive, but in a good way!

Very nice.

I'm convinced you pay your models more than the going rate!

Another winner!
