Blue Jay

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 17 September 2017 in Animal & Insect.

One of the loudest and most colorful birds of eastern back yards and woodlots, the Blue Jay is unmistakable. Intelligent and adaptable, it may feed on almost anything, and it is quick to take advantage of bird feeders. Besides their raucous jay! jay! calls, Blue Jays make a variety of musical sounds. Not always conspicuous, they slip furtively through the trees when tending their own nest or going to rob the nest of another bird. - Audubon Guide to North American Birds

These are super bird shots, were they all taken in your garden?

@Curly: Yes, we feed them on the old stump that the foxes used to sit on. Sadly, it is falling apart now.

He has a lot of similar habits as his live cousin in Finland. Eurasian Jay is a pear-shaped round in its general color, but its brassieres have a magnificent white decoration. Actually no one's song, but I do not think screams are fun. American jay is a beautiful bird.
