A whiskey jack, or grey jay, lives throughout Canada and the northern United States, as well as the some of the mountainous states in the western and southwestern U.S.
In this video, a man turns off his snowmobile engine, and a whiskey jack decides to pay a visit. Who knows, maybe the bird had been fed by people before and figured it might get a handout.
As you’ll see below, everything goes splendidly until . . . well, watch and see. Maybe it was the power of suggestion that caused the surprising outcome?
(Crank the volume to hear the man speak to the bird; the language is PG-13.)
