We were in Whistler, BC last week and saw this grey bird with black wings and a black bill, wondering what it is? They are not rare there, but we cannot find out what they are on line.

Hi Georgia. I just returned from skiing at Whistler. Saw several Gray Jays - we like to call them Whiskey jacks. I have uploaded a photo of one.
