Saw a couple of juvenile Western Scrub Jay fledglings in a tree at the Ridgefield NWR, July 28, 2014.  One of them landed on an unobstructed branch where I took this shot of the bird.  I don’t like that I had to aim up at the bird but that was my only shot.  You can see the beginnings of the characteristic white eyebrows of the ‘Pacific’ variety of Scrub Jay.   Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1250, f8, ISO 800, 1000mm (500 + 2x).
