This morning the blue jays called outside my window to tell me that a squirrel was pillaging the feeder. It made me think of this post from last winter when the jays chose to not let me sleep-in. I like the pictures, especially the last one which isn't even mine. I've decided to repost it since most of my readers didn't see it. I think It had 4 people that originally saw the post.
Anyway, here it is . . .
A good morning to sleep in. Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time. With dawn came blue jays with scratchy cries announcing their presence.
"Hey! What're you looking at?" Seems to be what this guy, above, is thinking.Lucky for blue jays that they are so nice to look at. Is it like people where some of the prettiest ones rely on their looks and don't work on developing a sweet disposition? I don't know, but I think they are mostly for show. They aren't as tough as they act. Blue jays are actually shy at times. They are among the first birds to leave the feeder if suspected danger looms near.
These two below might be arguing, or maybe they've seen the adds on television encouraging family conversation around the dinner table.
