Whiskey Jack in flight, patrolling the lift line at Whistler

I was taking a picture of the 3 Whiskey Jacks on the rail. They were all looking for handouts from skiers in the lift line. I noticed out of the corner of my eye this jaybird taking flight. Serendipitously, I caught her in mid-wing beat.
