Default Bluejay

My wife spotted a pair of BlueJays in the yard this morning, but I only caught one. He/she wanted to know which is it's better side.





A pair of very skiddish Cardinals came buy, but I only caught the female.

Ahhh - cute blue jay. Different than the jays that are common around here - yours are much prettier. I like the first one best.

I haven't heard any birds around here lately except the owl that hides in our yard. Surprised you still had some around.

Nice shots of the Blue Jay's! They are beautiful birds but are treble bully's at the feeder

Birds have been scarce at the feeders here this fall. I put out some peanuts and blue jays came and took them but did not stay.

The theory here with birders is that the wet summer has left an unusually large crop of berries on trees and shrubs and it is preferable for them to feed on.

Great feeder shots - full of personality and very clear!

(Despite our wet summer and excellent berry/seed crop, our feeders are full of birds! We've already used up about 50lb of sunflower seed!_
