|[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.

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 :)

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