Maybe a nuthatch? NEW
by: SheilaSB

I have seen this same type of bird in my yard, and I agree it is more grey than blue and smaller than a regular blue jay. I had considered it might be a nuthatch. The nuthatch has a shape similar to a jay but is much smaller. Please note if you see your bird going up and down the trunks of trees, eating seeds and insects in the bark. If so, it very well may be a nuthatch.

Blue Jay

Probably a blue jay. If you had been able to look closer, you may have seen some blue feathers. Depending on the bird, the chest can be grey to light blue with bright blue barred feathers on the back.
