As others have said, very nice.

Western Scrub Jays out here get very tame if they live around houses, learning to take food from peoples hands, even coming into houses where they have been encouraged to do so, and are treated like pets. For some reason, there are none resident within 10 or 15 miles of my house, but one wandered through a few years ago and stayed long enough to teach the House Finches that apples were good to eat, and then left - we haven't had an unblemished crop since!

As for Javelinas, which can be dangerous, the Secretary of the Smithsonian, a well known scientist, once was chased up a tree in Panama by a band of aggressive ones!They may be cute, but not cuddly!

And I like your new avatar.

penolta, those Scrub Jays are about the tamest wild birds I have seen. Kind of neat.

I watch my step around the Javelina, with young especially. Problem with them is they don't see well at all, and don't hear much better. Got a good nose though!

There have been times over the yearsthey have ran right at me if they got spooked, if I was down wind from them.I believe that is partially how they got their reputation. Although, I haven't tested that out....they still have those sharp tusks :lol:

That is a pretty nice buck in the avatar. I saw several of those recently.

Thanks for the comments!
