Clark's Nutcracker

The Nutcracker often live in places remote from human contact, near treeline on windy western peaks. Where it does encounter people, however, it seems fearless, striding about in picnic grounds and scenic-view parking lots, looking for handouts. Nutcrackers are champions at burying pine seeds (sometimes tens of thousands) in hidden caches in fall, then re-finding them during winter; these seed stores allow them to nest in late winter when the forest is still covered with snow. Much of diet is pine seeds; the remainder of diet quite varied, including other seeds, nuts, berries, insects, snails, eggs and young of other birds, carrion.
