  1. At times raucous, opinionated and full of themselves – Jays doing their thing, wouldn’t be the same without them.
    Grandfather has a great love of peanuts and the Jays have come to understand this, in short
    order when he steps outside they begin to put in an appearance – flashes of blue flitting about
    amidst a chorus of what I am sure is “toss me a peanut”.
    Nice photos.

    1. I cannot go out in to yard with out them chirping above my head. Well that is a bit of an exaggeration. If I go out quietly i’m left to my own. Run a garden hose or go in my greenhouse and the scout signals to the rest of them. 🙂

    1. It wasn’t so much a feeder as a place to keep my best buddy a grey squirrel off of my personal belongings. 🙂 I started putting peanuts on a table close to my table. Just far enough that blue jays were comfortable. I was feeding this one grey squirrel, because he does tricks. Then i noticed if I left the table he was in my beer, the bag of peanuts and my lunch. I know it’s my fault. i have been trying to remedy it with simple persuasion. The basket above has Sun Impatiens.

    1. Outside of grackle and blue jay and our resident robins, we are not seeing much action. Funny you say mockingbirds . Yesterday my mother-inlaw and I were looking at birds that look just like mockingbirds. I have never seen them here. They look very similar to the blue jay but grey and white. I’m sure they are around central Ontario I have never seen them

      1. I bought a Central Texas bird guide, but I am still not that good at identifying birds. I work in an office building on the 5th floor and I often see black vultures, crows, and an occasional hawk go by. There is a stand of trees near the building and the vultures often circle it during the day, they’re such ugly birds, but useful.

      2. I know absolutely nothing about birds, just the few I see every year. Vultures are ugly . We have turkey vultures here. We have crows and there diet consist of garbage and roadkill . But in the last year I have seen crows with gold beaks 3 times the size of an average crow and they circle, so i assume they are hunting.
