One of my Favorite Birds: a BLUE JAY

Beautiful Blue Jay--eating a Peanut!
We have many birds in our yard which come to the Bird Kitchen.  This one (Blue Jay) is always a favorite of mine.  They are only here from Spring through Fall---and they love the peanuts I put out for them.


Hugs,

It is such a brilliant blue.

That's a great shot Betsy. However, I can't say they are one of my favorite birds....to me they are bullies...always running all the other birds off.

Beautiful photo of the Blue Jay. I miss mine from my other place. Haven't seen or heard any in the area of our new house. They were so much fun to watch as they would check out each peanut to feel which was the biggest.

Nice close-up. A very pretty bird. Are they as pesky as our Jays? MB

I love Blue Jays! They have the best personalities. Unfortunately, we don't have "real" Jays out here, but our scrub jays and stellar jays are very much like the real ones.
We used to have a pair around our house they would fly right in if the door was open. They were always looking for peanuts.

I love blue jays too. They're so feisty! The blue jay was also the mascot of my high school.
