Hmmm easy boreal birds, lets not forget Spruce Grouse. They will peck your boots, get in your lap, flash thier fan ahead of you on the trail and refuse to move over (why should they). I do agree the Gray Jay in the Northeast is a fan favorite.

> Around here you're absolutely right Steve, but in the White Mountains the Gray Jays are the easiest. It doesn't take any patience because they'll just land on your hand and eat your food if you're not paying attention. Hence one of their colloquial names, "Camp Robber".
> I've never seen any evidence that Boreal Chickadees consider humans as a food provider the way Black-capped do, and I wouldn't expect them to.
