right size for a scrub jay? seems too blue enough for a sharp-shinned, right?

yep. scrub jay. leave it to our friends in china to unmask this beast. i guess it was more a 'quiz' than an i.d. thing.
...........

the white line (on the right side of the bird) is a peanut (in shell).

Well thanks for that! My husband was skeptical that it was a bird! Interesting how the peanut turned out.
