Blue Jay at Feeder

 Peanuts!

Peanuts are rich in protein and fat and attract many birds to feeders.

 Yum!

This blue jay was so attracted that it hardly noticed I was only a few feet away with my camera.

Are you looking at me?

I am connecting to Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE

Karen said...

I love the way birds look at you trying to photograph them, they either fly away or stay and pose.
Wonderful photos. Have a great week.

Great photos, those Blue Jays sure love their peanuts don't they?

Margaret Adamson said...

HI EG Great shots of the Blue Jay. I love the last shots best.

see you there! said...

Wonderful shots! Our jays like peanuts but we put them out in the shell a handful at a time. They spot them immediately.

Many people don't like bluejays because they chase away other birds, but I've always liked them. They are so beautiful as your photos show.

Jenn said...

Rose said...

Pretty greedy boy !

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I am seeing more and more of these peanut feeders on blogs, perhaps I should get one also, as if I don't spend enough $$$ on bird food as it is already.

Not only birds, I am also attracted by peanuts.

TexWisGirl said...

love these beauties!

Gary Phillips said...

I think these guys are addicted to peanuts!! Boom, Bobbi and Gary.

Debbie said...

nothing comes between them and their nuts ;)

RedPat said...

He looks a bit thin so can probably use a few nuts!

Nette Cecilia said...

Lovley shots ,nette

edenhills said...

I think I need to put some of those peanuts out. I know they are obnoxious, but I love the jays.

Lowell said...

He's a cutie and is certainly nuts about nuts!

cieldequimper said...

Pretty little fellow. I wonder if he's a cousin of our blue tits... (no pun...)

Jacquelineand.... said...

Pretty little guy, and is there anything cheekier than a jay?

Sue said...

Blue jays are cocky. Maybe that's because they are so good-looking!

;)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The Jay is loving your restaurant! Fine food indeed. He pays you with great photo ops!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Great shots of the jay. It's a beautiful bird.

Stuart said...

I love the blue jays. These guys look quite a bit different from the ones I knew in North Carolina and Virginia.

Gail Dixon said...

He's a beauty. Ours love peanuts too, but I can never get very close unless I'm in a bird blind. Nice shots!

Andrea Priebe said...

That little bit of green tinge on his tail and belly makes me think he has been meandering in a freshly cut yard. I love the Blue Jays. They are so entertaining and beautiful. Great pictures ...

orchid Miyako said...

Great visitor and feeder; I wish I could see them with my own eyes p;)

Lisa Gordon said...

What a sweet little one, and I'll bet he's glad to have the feeder all to himself! :-)

kelley jensen said...

what a pretty little fellow.

Chris Rohrer said...

I love how this feeder says....."You need to work for your peanut!:)" It looks squirrel proof!

Kathy said...

Great shots. My mother despises blue jays and sends them packing anytime they get near our feeders! I think they're gorgeous.
