Calif Scrub-Jays disperse in fall, which seems to be when they create new
outposts of range expansion, as well as fill in gaps from previous
expansions. We've had quite a surge of them on the Olympic Peninsula in the
past month, especially in eastern Jefferson County (e.g. Quilcene north to
Discovery Bay and Port Townsend and Marrowstone Island). They were a
flagged species on eBird here just a couple years ago. I am now
encountering them almost daily.

good birding,
