There were at least three Grey Jays feeding on what looked like a small remnant of deer carcass today, Armistice Day 2017. This was at low elevation: Sauk Prairie in Snohomish County, right at the bottom of Forest Road 24, where it intersects with Sauk Prairie Road. The meat was in the brush just five or ten meters from the right side of the road, maybe fifty meters from the road junction. A Steller's Jay was foraging with them. As the jays carried off bits of meat to eat, they'd consume it up on perches in the trees, then return for more. One could get quite close to the jays by walking up to where the meat was.
