    Scrub Jay harassing Turkey Vulture

    A scrub jay harassing a turkey vulture. Ultimately, after repeated angry chirps and fly-bys, the vulture had enough and flew away - which is what the jay wanted.

    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...

    City Birds Of San Diego

    We do a daily live stream of our backyard feeders and watering dishes. We have a variety of birds that hang out in our yard including scrub jays, hooded orioles, house finches, sparrows and crows. We enjoy watching them to relax and have included some enjoyable reggae music in the background to...

    Greetings from Oregon!

    Hello! Like many others, I got into birding during the pandemic. It all started when I was quarantining with my partner in our tiny apartment, and I kept hearing this loud, obnoxious sound outside our window. It used to annoy me, but then I looked up what I thought the sound was and it turned...

    I was sitting by my feeders today and had the opportunity to photograph these two beautiful birds! I am not quite sure why, but they prefer shelled peanuts to ones still in the shells. My only guess is that they want an immediate and easy food source. I hope they come back! It honestly came out...

    It's looking more like another early spring for us. This jay didn't look too happy with the light rain falling but we really need it. The buds are on a redbud tree that grows wild in our area.

    Hey, I was here first!

    The jays think they own the chopped peanuts on this log. This is what happens when the doves try to take over. The good part is that some birds prefer to eat their share on the floor of the deck so nothing goes to waste. Sorry I haven't gotten to everyone's pictures this past week. I've been...

    got another

    In the 3 weeks I was there, the jays emptied out two whole sunflowers and were working hard on the rest. This is just about the last shot I took from Mom's garden. Ever. Brother and SIL are finishing packing and staging the house for sale. By next visit it will have been sold. I hope the next...

    Got Any Ticks?

    This is the time of year our jays start hunting for ticks and fleas on the local deer.

    Scrub Jay

    A year round bird in our garden, I watched three of these jays try to stop a hawk from grabbing what I thought might be one of their young from a nest this morning. Certainly not a fun part of nature for me.
