I often wish I could speak with a jay or Raven.  But this bird, today, was especially intriguing.  Whats going on with these fluffy, pale back feathers?  Wish I could say, “How’s the molt going?” It almost looked like he had “combed” his longer breast feathers up over his back like a shawl? Perhaps it was a stage in his day-ending preen and when the preen was over those pale feathers would be properly tucked back under the wings?
