Hello!
Great photos! I love these blue jays. It's interesting that our jays are pink. They often come to my garden feeder.

I do love the Blue Jays and particularly such a "picky" eater -- not just any peanut will do!! Fun/lovely shots for the day as always, EG!! Hope you're day is off to a great start!! Enjoy!!

Nicki said...

I never think to put peanuts out for birds - but then with my current herd of feral cats, I don't put anything out for birds (they'll thank me later).
