BLUE LIKE THE JAYS – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue

And after the Red-Bellied Woodpecker flew off to do other things, the Blue Jays came back and I took some more pictures! These are beautiful birds. Rather sinister and they destroy the nests of other birds and eat their eggs.  But as blue as a bird gets, Blue Jays are. Blue, I mean.

And a few more blues:

Spiderwort

Garry in blue

Blue benches

  6. All so lovely. We don’t have blue jays here, we do have stellars jays which are similar but so damn noisy, they never shut up and they squak it isn’t a pretty bird song to be honest!

  7. The birdie in the first photo you shared (of the blue jay montage), looks so cheeky! They might be mean birds, but their plumage is magnificent! Thanks for sharing!!

    • Blue Jays are beautiful and rather impressive, but they are nest raiders. They will try to take on most birds — except (obviously) hawks — and woodpeckers! Garry was looking at them this morning and commenting what an impressive bird it is. Our are really BIG.
