    This common but attractive Eastern North American jay was complaining loudly just outside the tram terminal. Their crest often lies flat, but here it is raised slightly. This is presumably the paler, duller South Florida race "C. c. semplei" which has recently expanded into the Florida Keys...

    As I said in my last photo, Blue Jays are my only regular visitors at this point. I think they know that they're the only ones getting the goodies now. I mean, you can tell that they think they have the run of the place by the smug expression on this guy!

    Blue Jays, usually a very skittish and cautious bird when it comes to humans. But mine perch just above me while I sit on the deck, waiting for me to produce a peanut for them. They will come close enough for me to toss them and the jays catch them. I can't hand feed them, they are just too...

    One of the more common visitors to my yard, a blue jay. This one's name is Otto, but when he's knocking over the basket of peanuts, his name can't be repeated in mixed company. And, here's a bit of trivia I never knew till today - blue jays from my home state, Connecticut, averaged a full ounce...
