When I first saw the Clark Nutcracker bird when I’m Surfing over the internet what came up in my mind is " Look like a dove" in my country Philippines. This species is a medium size of bird, noisy and inquisitive jay with pale gray head and body. It has long black bill and stout. The wings are black with white patches and tail is black with white edges . They eat nuts, insects, young of other birds, eggs, lizards, carrion and small mammals. It is a bird of the high mountain regions of the American West and is specialized for feeding on large pine seeds. This bird can be found in two distinct types of habitat in Washington. Both types are characterized by dry, open, pine forest. Their primary habitat is high-elevation white back pine forest near the upper tree line and other secondary habitat is ponderosa pine forest at lower tree line. They are bold around humans, often coming to picnic, ski area to bed for handouts, and camping.
The Clark Nutcracker voice is extremely varied and produces many different sounds. They are monogamous species and form long-term pair bonds. The couple stay together on their territories year round. They begin nesting in late winter, relying on the food they have cached to raise their young. They usually nest in a conifer tree, generally in a fork at the outer branches. The couple help build the nest which is a platform of twigs and bark with a well-insulated cup made of bark strips and grass, with pine needles on top. Wow, this birds seems to be real smart base on my research. They seems to know how to take care of their young's. The couple both incubate the egg two to five eggs for about 18 days and then brood the young for their first 10-11 days. I kinda like this bird and I hope the population will exist more.
