That's one of them Cross Breeds, a Stellar Robin Jay. Heard some of the Stellar Jay species has been getting extra horny over the past few years. Depletion of hens of that species they say.

I've never seen one of these either but I suppose I can compromise with MJB... Monster Thrush!

I did a google on MJB's Thrush and it seems this fellow exists only in a very restricted range, of which Vancouver is included. When I first spotted this funny looking Robin out my window I went for the camera but it spotted me and took off.. I waited a spell with out any luck but then, as I was loading the car to head to the airport.. it graced me with one last opportunity.
