We have a couple of Steller's Jays in our yard that I've been watching since we moved in a couple of years ago. I've never been able to get a picture of them even though they often hang out just outside our patio under the trees. I think they're so beautiful and they remind me of the Cardinals I grew up admiring in our suburb of St. Louis. A couple of nights ago our Steller's Jays visited us while we were having dinner and I just so happened to have the camera close by (seems to be key since they fly away when they see us moving around inside the house). My husband was able to get the sliding glass door open just enough for me to take a few pictures.
Here's some more information about them: Steller's Jay
