And who trusts things on utube? People splice in stuff from all over. Just 
because these stones are found in Romania does not mean only Romania. At 4:08 
minutes the narrator (it is quite a strain to keep up with him), says that 
these stones are found elsewhere mentioning amongst other places e.g. Wyoming, 
that is western USA, and clearly within the range of Steller's Jay. So a bit of 
extra film slotted in there. Nothing odd there.

Definitely a Steller's Jay, the question is, how did it get to Europe. This 
bird lives only on the west coast of North America, not a likely vagrant that 
far east! It is an extremely rare bird anywhere in the eastern half of NA.Gary

1.07 minutes into this video on Trovants (a peculiar form of sandstone
boulders found in Rumania), there is an appearance of a bird I can't
identify. I would say it definitely isn't a European bird and looks more
like a S American sub-oscine.

A screen-capture is here:

But you might get more detail by watching the video.
