I have a lot more pictures. A LOT more. And two more cards with all birds too. I stopped shooting a little while ago. I spend ALL day yesterday processing photographs and I’ll need another whole day to process the next batch. I like to think the time is worth it, but sometimes, I need a breather — a pause between shifts at the computer. Meanwhile, here’s my lot of Blue Jays.
There were close to a dozen of them on the deck this morning. I’ve never seen that many Jays together in one relatively small setting. I didn’t think they got along well enough to clump together, but these guys were hunting seeds. This cold weather makes them all hungry and there aren’t any live insects for them, so they rely on people like me and my neighbor. Also, because of the long summer drought, there were fewer seeds in the woods this year, so without feeders, they wouldn’t make it.
