Seen at the bird bath this week – a baby blue jay. We have found two dead jay fledglings on the back patio this month – lots of predators out and about. I’m happy to see some have made it. This guy is adorable with his short tail, fuzzy white belly feathers and pinkish baby-beak corners.
Newsflash: this week we have seen another blue jay pair building a new nest in the red oak in the front yard. Their nest is visible from our kitchen window. I’m looking forward to more stealthy shots. Stay tuned.
