Blue Jays

Monday, October 28, 2013

I put peanuts out every day. Blue jays and nuthatches are the ones who usually come and take them -- they are gone before the squirrels even think about them. There are three blue jays and this photo actually captured two at once. The blue jays must be starting to feel more comfortable. Earlier this month they visited one at a time and any movement caused them to take flight.

I'm not terribly sure where they take the peanuts. I think somewhere in the neighborhood there is a huge stash. Talk about hoarding!

    Was coming by to thank you for the visit when I saw this blog. So cute I love blue Jays. I use to feed them at my other house, now I only see them when I go to the mountains.
Have a great day. emoticon emoticon

    How fun. Our Scrub Jays also love the peanuts, and scold us if they are not in the dish!

    Janet, Blue Jays are an interesting breed. They usually make sure the others don't get much. They are beautiful though.
Glad you're NOT feeding the squirrels.
Have a great week.

    Someday, sometime, you'll be cutting a tree or brush and you'll find a treasure trove of peanuts! or at least the shells. LOL
