[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
WhiskeyJacks are a common bird in SW British Columbia, and have a tendancy to become rather aggressive when there's people and food around; especially in Provincial Parks where they're more accustomed to free handouts.
Perhaps the warning in the mirror should read, "Objects on mirror are closer than they appear".
Not the sharpest detail on the bird, but it was the best one I could muster as they weren't sitting around very long on the mirror.

i know "objects IN the rear view mirror..."
but ON the rear view mirror?! they are
certainly too close! *g* and a "Whiskey" Jack?!
haha...uncle jack always had too much whiskey.
anayway, excellent and funny snap-shot, tim! :-)
really deserves a smilie for a big smile.
well seen & captured, thor.

I know what you mean Tim about these little moochers being aggressive. We were out for a hike one time and just pealed an orange. One of these kamakazies came out of no where and stole the piece right out of my hand. A bit entertaining.

Nice closeup, you should have drawn fangs sticking out of his beak :)

great shot,
funny and very good POV, not ordinary
I just wish that the bird was a bit more sharper :)
