A blue jay's Christmas breakfast
Because she now has her own home where she can feed birds and watch them daily, she has become as addicted to this pass time as I am and has begun putting out peanuts for the blue jays. I know several people who do this so the blue jays - who tend to hog the feeders - will have their own spot to feed.
These photos cracked me up. It actually looks as if the bird has one in his beak when he's grabbing another.
It's Christmas - don't I get to eat my fill?
I probably won't get a chance to post again until tomorrow night since tomorrow I take a woman who is 93 and the most avid bird watcher I know, on the annual Christmas Bird Count. This is organized by Bird Studies Canada and takes place across the country around this time every year. I'll have stories to tell after that you can bet...
Happy day after Boxing Day - it looks like a Christmas card out there! More snow today.
