There was a commotion within the silver birch foliage not far from my window, and a little later, this Jay emerged. The species is normally rather shy, but the bird ignored the rather loud camera noise. It seemed a bit dazed. All was explained when it flew and was closely followed by another bird, two white rumps in quick succession. I noticed on a previous occasion that they seem less wary for a while after mating.
Thank you for your comments on my pictures, stay safe and well, and good birding!
