A Blue Jay In The Backyard

We might not see a Blue Jay in our neighborhood for weeks, even months. Now we have three regulars that come every day.

Here's one of them :

Thanks guys :-)
Mike , I think I have only seen a Jay 4 times in my life back home. It always used to be so exciting though.
Over here they seem to be at most parks.

I haven't put out too many sunflower seeds yet, but when I do I will have a bunch of Jays daily!

Yours is the most handsome blue jay I've seen in a long time - and you must have told him how to pose - it was too perfect!

Wow! It's beautiful and so clear. I just want to reach out and stroke the top of it's pretty little head. :-)
