Feeding The Jays!!

Of all the birds that visit my feeders, I have the most fun with the Blue Jays.
They come in close for peanuts, 
they are such a pretty shade of blue 
and their feather pattern resembles beautiful stained glass.
They are the underdogs with most bird lovers, most people think they are bullies...
I think they get a bad rap.
It is survival of the fittest at the feeders and I just kinda' think they do what they have to!!

Here at my house, they are friendly and pose beautifully for pictures.

 





And when the peanuts are gone...

they fly off to here...

and squeal like crazy to let me know they are in need of a refill!

  6. I agree--I like blue jays too! That blue is soooooo pretty. We have some that nest underneath a window where we have a window perch for the kitties. Abbey loves seeing them. Well, she would probably prefer eating them. But since she's an inside cat, I tell her "Birds are our friends." :-)

  19. Wow you captured them nice and close up, we only get a few around here, maybe we need to put peanuts out for them :) I have never seen one that close up before because they usually fly away as soon as we try to see them and Greg hasn't gotten any pictures of them yet. Just Beautiful.... we have a few birds that make a fuss too if the bird feeder is empty. Hope your enjoying a great weekend

  21. I heard one yelling yesterday, and figured he was trying to tell me the grackles got all his peanuts. When I got to the kitchen window, I found he was sounding the alarm that a Cooper's Hawk was in the yard.
