Steller's Jay Sue Coleman Art Card
Raven held a feast, inviting the other birds to bring food. He built a fire and while the food was cooking began to get hungrier and hungrier. He greedily decided to get all the food for himself, and so he sent the other birds to get more wood for he fire and when they were gone ate all the food. On their return, the birds were angry and Thrush began scratching in the ashes for scraps which caused her coat to become speckled. Robin probed into the center of the fire pit and the heat turned her chest bright red. Flicker flew in circles over the dying embers, scorching the underside of his wings. Meanwhile the Jay sat in the branches and screamed with anger. In his frustration, he began twisting the feathers on top of his head into a crest and began to lose his breath - so much so that he turned the colour of blue that he is today.
