I watched this Starling Sturnus vulgaris and her mates dive into coastal bramble and sea buckthorn scrub at the end of their flight across the North Sea, from Scandinavia to eastern England ...

I was looking at some of the online bird info sites, and some have audio clips of the bird calls as MP3 files.

I downloaded one for the CA Scrub Jay onto my recorder, then put it on loop playback and played it into a battery-powered speaker set out in the yard.

One Scrub Jay high in the trees got curious, bobbed its head a few times, and then responded to the speaker's calls. Suddenly about six others showed up and it seemed some turf war ensued. Lots of racket and bird battles in the trees, which also got the neighbor out of her house to find out what their noise was all about. Maybe the recording was a "Call to arms?"

Guess bird calls do work.

One scrub jay is noisy enough all by itself.

Ok, more bird identification help needed -

Who’s this little dude who wants to be a pelican?

When I was shooting this one (there were actually two flying around), I thought it was a hawk of some sort. It wasn’t until today when editing photos, I think it’s clear it’s an owl of some sort instead...any idea what kind of owl?

And finally, what’s this little camouflaged guy? A grouse?

All photos taken in Northern Utah, as I’m sure that matters.
Thanks!
