    It's not often I can catch Gordon out, but this is one of those very very rare occasions - you were right in your captioning, it's a Steller's Jay. We have both Steller's and Scrub Jays here and as Gordon noted, they're fairly common birds.

They are quite common here as well - I find them squaking in my front yard from time to time, yet I took me having to climb a mountain to actually get the motivation to capture one. Here is one more if anyone is at all interested in this sort of thing:
