A Blue Jay that found my sunflower seed feeder that I just put up this past Friday. I have bird feeders out all year long but I only use sunflower seed in winter. It helps keep the squirrels population low or I would have a hundred or more of them here. I put out bird food for the birds, not for the squirrels. They damage too many things around my property, the feeders, flower beds and my house. I could care less if they get fed or not. To me they're nothing more than a rat with a fluffy tail, "A Tree Rat". Anyway, this is the first time I've been this close to a Blue Jay since last March. It's good to see them around here if just for their beautiful blue coloration. It is an aggressive bird around the bird feeders. bluejay024 bluejay026 These are yesterday's images from my house window.
