Best In "Snow"!!

There were hundreds of birds at the feeders on January 9th
but the Blue Jays shine, of course...and win my award for Best In Snow!
 
Here are the images, in the order they were taken!!

 







They are one of my favorites because they get such a bad rap.
They are feisty and a tad overzealous,
but look at that color and their feather pattern,
they are gorgeous in the snow.
 
And because I always root for the underdog,
today, the Jays win by a landslide!!

Sharing today's images with Anni at I'd Rather Be Birding
Stop by, take a peak or share a bird,
you'll be happy you did!!

  6. I agree!! Although - I'm a sucker for the bright red cardinals in the snow too! Thanks for the "straight into the camera" shot! Fun to see the beak and claws in the snow!!

  8. Is it their lovely blue that wins my vote? Possibly it's my favorite color. But I think it's the nature of their scooping in and commanding any scene as I am the One and Only coolest bird around. Ha! Ha! But I bet they truly believe it! Not a shy or timid movement for them!

  19. I'm usually on the side of the underdogs, too. I think Blue Jays are beautiful! Blue is my second most favorite color.

    You did a great job with these! You captured the snow swirling around the bird.
