    Blue Jay Blue Jays are known to take and eat eggs and nestlings of other birds, but we don’t know how common this is. In an extensive study of Blue Jay feeding habits, only 1% of jays had evidence of eggs or birds in their stomachs. Most of their diet was composed of insects and nuts and...

    Buffeted Blue Jay

    Friday morning we had a snow storm. It moved through quickly and by the late afternoon the sun was out. But a cold North wind persisted, ruffling up this Blue Jay's crest.

    Blue jay bolero!

    A blue jay in my backyard, performing an elaborate jumping dance, along with gurgling rattle noises and clucks in between loud hawk-like screams and bobbing of its head and dipping legs...all of which seemed to be about retaining the bird bath for itself!

    Didn't notice this till I looked at it later. I threw a peanut into the air and this Jay went inverted in flight to catch it.

    Blue Jay

    He's on high alert, because in this photo I was tossing him peanuts and he was catching them. Here he's waiting for me to toss another one.

    As late fall and with the approach of winter, the number of bird species in my yard is reduced to a handful. But, the Blu Jays are herer year round and always put on a good show.

    Life's a bit hectic at the moment with video editing, and the bird survey season has started, so I'm out several mornings a week. This morning I hit and killed a kangaroo - an occupational hazard!! Corner of bumper broke off.

    Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata subsp. crista) This Coastal Bluejay is sunbathing. Many species of birds sunbath and appear to go in a trance-like state while doing so. Birders I have birded with in the past have called this state a catatonic state and likewise I have too, following their lead...

    I was lucky to get this nice guy. It was luck too that it was Spring and the trees had only buds on. So one can see the whole bird in its beaty.
