W. Scrub-Jay is scarce in Skagit Co (there are 4-5 records now) and none
from the islands to the west (Guemes, Cypress, Fidalgo, etc). I'm not aware
of any records at all from San Juan County (but could be mistaken), I'd be
surprised if Whatcom Co (in which most of Lummi lies) has more than a record
or two, but best to check with others on that.
