“Whiskey Jack”-Please describe a “whiskey jack”.
The “whiskey jack” is the Canada jay. It appears to be about the size of a robin, perhaps a little smaller, the heavy coat of feathers making it appear larger than it really is. The general color is gray, lighter on the under parts, with ashy white on the sides of the head. It is very voracious and will eat anything in the line of meat that it can find. It is a nuisance to the northern trapper as it steals the bait from the trap, or springs the trap and gets caught, whenever the bait is exposed to view. Its call is a low, soft rolling note. The bird is also known as the moose bird and gray jay.
