    GRAY Jay A widespread and confiding denizen of boreal and sub-alpine forests, the Gray Jay frequently approaches people for food. It may even land on your hand for a morsel. This tameness can also lead to the pilferage of food not offered, and is responsible for the colloquial name of "camp robber."The Gray Jay stores large quantities of food for later use. It uses sticky saliva to glue small food items to tree branches above the height of the eventual snow line. It may be this food storage behaviour that allows the jay to live so far north throughout the winter.
