I photographed this Eastern Blue Jay across the street from my home on May 16, 2015. Blue Jays are infrequent visitors along my stretch of the street. When they are around, one can really hear a lot of chatter! The Eastern Blue Jays primarily love eating insects, but also enjoy nuts, seeds, and fruits.
This bird was hunting high and low for a tasty insect. There is a lot of competition here on my street among the birds, Anole lizards, and even the squirrels for the bugs and spiders for foods. I am certain though, that on this occasion, the jay got its meal! Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture. Enjoy!
