Wolves killed the moose three or four years ago. Now porcupines and squirrels gnaw its bleached antlers for calcium, and birds swoop in to hunt for insects. But what's attracting this gray jay is the photographer. This mischievous yet trusting bird seems innately drawn to humans, knowing we might have food. It's clever, like its cousin the raven, who leans to the opposite temperament, shy and suspicious.
