    Florida Scrub Jay with a Florida sized Acorn

    Florida has one bird that is endemic to the state, the Florida Scrub Jay. Sadly, their numbers are in decline. It is the only species of bird endemic to the U.S. state of Florida and one of only 15 species endemic to the continental United States. Because of this, it is keenly sought by birders...

    New here

    Hello👋 New here, joined to share, I see and get regular visits from oddly rarely seen birds 🦅 . A Jay or what I thought at first was a brown, white and purple feathered magpie visited. I am not sure why or what for, however someone let the birds out and I’m getting to see them. Some I have no...

    KC you are right since I experienced the first time I saw the Blue Jay taking a bath it's now an everyday occurrence. These guys have been experiencing the heat as well. A lot of times their mouth is open.

    Been waiting to take my best picture of him and still this is good but it doesn't show his plumage much but look at the size of him. Blue Jays in South Carolina are big. They got to be some of the biggest yard birds. Now how can this beautiful bird be related to a Crow?

    Taken a long time for me to capture these photos of the Jays in conflict over feeding rights. I have been trying now for almost a week to get them together at one time and to get these photos. I was very pleased when it finally happened and I viewed the results.

  17. Jays


    Just a grab shot through a grubby window in poor light, but a record of how many show up as soon as I throw food out. There was actually at least one more in my trees, but it's very difficult catching more than two together in the same frame, as they don't tolerate each other for more than a...

    Two Jays

    A really grubby window yesterday, as one of the Pigeons forgot his glasses and kept side-swiping the glass as he took off ;) But... I watched some strange behaviour yesterday. The Jay on the left, which I now think is a male, kept going through his repertoire of poses. The poses, with the...
