Eastern Blue Jays and Tufted Titmice have been here in the neighborhood for the past week. These are likely migrant visitor birds here for the Winter from up North. The Eastern Blue Jays are loud, brash beautiful White and Turquoise Blue-colored birds with black accents. They are flashy and are bold birds.
The Tufted Titmice are charming little grey birds with their cute top knot. Both birds are excellent at getting insects for their dinner. They also will eat fruit, and nuts and seeds. The Titmice are here in a flock of about fifteen birds. I am not sure that there are as many Blue Jays around. I have only seen a pair of the Jays. I took the pictures here in my yard on Oct. 1, 2013. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
