California Scrub Jay - Aphelocoma californica Superciliosa Kat Avila 2014-10-05 Santa Ana, Orange County, California, Orange (United States) (50 m) alarm call, call -

Two scrub-jays by Santiago Park's nature center seemed highly agitated by something as they were calling a little longer than usual. Approaching the nature center, I could hear the center's security alarm had gone off. This may have frightened the jays.

I videotaped one of the jays, which continued to call. It was partly hidden in the bushes against the park perimeter's wire fencing. The other jay remained unseen but close by, and it can be heard periodically in the background, especially toward the end of the audio recording.
