Eastern Blue Jays have been around the little farm in recent days. It is molting time for many of the jays so feathers are not in prime condition. I think that because the nesting season is still happening and molting is starting, the bird feeder acts as a back-up reserve for tired-out birds to find an easy bite to eat. The Blue Jays are medium-sized blue, white and black birds. They are very vocal with both musical notes and more squawking calls. They eat insects, seeds and fruits. The Blue Jays around here are quite wary of people and fly off whenever they see me. I enjoy seeing them here as it has been a pretty long time between their visits up until the past several weeks. I think that these visitors live in the Pines along the road in front of the little farm here. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
