The California Scrub-Jay continued today in the same location. He is not going anywhere with all the peanuts Mike is feeding him! :P

Cheers,
Mel

Hello Mel,
We drove by yesterday around 230pm and did not see it. Was hesitant to get too close as it was a private residence. We will try again tomorrow.
Thanks,
Matt

I was there this afternoon at around 3:30pm. The bird wasn't in the outside perimeter and don't want to intrude into a private backyard. Thanks regardless!

Hi guys the owner is aware birders are coming and gave permission to publish his address. You don't have permission to enter his yard but if you walk around especially on the lane directly behind South Grandview Hwy between Penticton and Copley and are patient the bird will fly in. He calls a lot too and on this lane his favourite perch is an apple tree. Sometimes it takes 10 minutes and sometimes over an hour, patience is the key. Laura Stewart had him today just after 11am.

Good luck!

Cheers,
Mel
