Western Wood Pewee and Black-throated Magpie-Jay

The Western Wood Pewee sits on a branch and catches flies and small insects. They will usually return to the same branch over and over so you can anticipate the landing.
The Black-throated Magpie-Jay is only found in a very limited area in the s part of San Diego Co in the Tijuana river valley in the US and into Mexico. It has only recently been recorded as breeding in the US. It has an extremely long tail and is very showy. One landed on the mirror on my van and pecked at its reflection.
