A errant flock of Pinyon Jays has been spotted in San Diego's Laguna Mountains and local birders grabbed their binoculars to catch a glimpse.
According to the San Diego County Bird Atlas by Philip Unitt, Pinyon Jays are normally found farther north in the San Jacinto mountains and they are rarely seen in San Diego.
Birders posting on Cornell Lab of Ornithology's eBird report seeing a sizable flock of up to 250 Jays off Sunrise Highway. Sightings of the birds were first reported in the area on October 3.
