As it stood originally, this sentence was a fragment, which means that it was incomplete, missing either a subject or a main verb. It was missing a main verb, since the verb “is” follows the relative pronoun “which” and so functioned as the verb of the relative (dependent) clause and not as the verb of the main clause. By removing the relative pronoun and the comma that preceded it, you have allowed “the steller’s jay” to function directly as the subject of the verb “is.” Since there is no relative pronoun, there is no relative clause, and “is” now functions as the verb of the independent clause. In this corrected version, the sentence has both a subject and a main verb, and so is no longer a fragment.
