Backyard Bird Portraits: Bluejay

Gregory Scheckler often includes ecological and nature-oriented themes in his drawing, painting, and photography.

This photo of a blue jay is from a decade-old series of studies of the characters, colors, and forms of many local birds, from his backyard in Williamstown to you.

These explorations were made using a variety of remote cameras, backdrops, patience, and a lot of bird seed.
