Blue jay
One of the more common visitors to my yard, a blue jay. This one's name is Otto, but when he's knocking over the basket of peanuts, his name can't be repeated in mixed company. And, here's a bit of trivia I never knew till today - blue jays from my home state, Connecticut, averaged a full ounce heavier than any other jay in the country!
Eastern and central North America but occasionally can be found as far north as Canada.
