I have a webcam right near the entrance of a birdhouse on our garden shed and, quite often, get some rather remarkable pictures. Here's one from last weekend! :)
I don't like Stellar Jays - they are obnoxious, loud and they chase the other birds from the bird feeders. But I will readily admit that they are very pretty - and every now and then, I get a good pic of one.
Many people, especially in colder/wetter climates, take down their bird feeders during fall and don't put them back out until Spring. But there are probably hundreds of birds in your area that still need to eat!
