That is the most beautiful thing I have seen all week! Well done! How close were you? To me, it looks like one of this year's hatchlings just grown up,

Thanks Retriever.
I was about 6 or 8 feet away from this bird. This was taken at the park/ bird sanctuary near my house where I've been handfeeding chickadees and nuthatches for years and it caught on with other folks that started bringing food. Other species like these jays over time watch them getting fed and lose a lot of fear of people (especially for people with sunflower seeds and peanuts), and will come much closer than they usually do.
It is really hard to tell sex or age with these birds and this was taken about a month ago, so they would have shed any feathers with nest wear.
