May 22, 2015, at the Ridgefield NWR.  Here I observed this Western Scrub Jay repeatedly hopping off this sign to the ground to catch various insects for afternoon snacks, then flying back to the sign to enjoy its catch.  Here the bird has captured some kind of spider and is taking one last look before swallowing it.
