An Inquisitive Blue Jay

DSC_5116 (2)

This inquisitive Eastern Blue Jay was spying on the goings-on in the parking lot next to Lake Miramar in The Villages, Florida, yesterday late in the afternoon.  Blue Jays are pretty intelligent birds and I think are often interested in what is happening around them.

I also think that the medium-sized songbird was investigating the fact that the White Ibis crowd and Seagulls in the park, were being hand fed by well-meaning (still should not be happening) tourist children.  Maybe the Blue Jay had even been in on the goodies.  Who knows?  After a few moments, the jay flew off to other adventures elsewhere.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello, love the jay but the white ibis are my favorite. I guess because I see the jays here everyday but the white ibis are more Florida birds. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  2. Nice pictures of the Jay. I’d bet anything that he got at least his share of the goodies!

  3. i like these loud and beautiful birds.

    • Hi Tex, Yes, the Eastern Blue Jay is a spectacular-looking bird. They are pretty vocal as well. I have only spotted a couple of the rarely seen Florida Scrub Jays but I hope I will be seeing more. The Eastern Blue Jay is common in some of the parks and neighborhoods. Have a great Tuesday tomorrow!
