The Steller's Jay is not on the Minnesota list. I did a very quick search
and the closest vagrant that I can find is Southwest South Dakota.

Subject: [mou-net] Steller's Jay

Today, July 13, 2011, along West Chaska Creek while driving northwest midway
along the Creek Road between County Road 61 (Chaska Blvd.), and County Road
10 in Carver County, Minnesota, at approximately 1:30 PM, CDT, my wife Debra
Larsen tentatively identified a Steller's Jay standing on the road in the
south bound lane. The Bird stayed perfectly still as she drove past at
approximately 25 Mph. On arriving home in Waconia she consulted the
Smithsonian Field Guide to the Birds of North America and Birds of North
America Online and these two sources confirmed for her her sighting. The
bird had a black crest that was not erect, its upper head was black and it
had a dark blue body. It's legs were dark, and in that lighting at that time
appeared black. Can anyone confirm that Steller's Jays have been observed in
Carver County or in Minnesota? We consulted the Birds of Minnesota check
list of the M.O.U and Carver County Composite List compiled by Robert B.
Janssen, revised through February 28, 2010 and can find no listing for a
Steller's Jay sighting in either Carver County or in Minnesota.  Any help on
this would be much appreciated.
