We have Blue Jays here in late spring and summer. They disappear in winter --although I've seen them around in the Glade.. They just don't stay near our house... Bet they go near the water...???

Hugs,
Betsy

Such a handsome bird!

Blue jays are great performers. You got some great shot showing their curiosity.

I thought you said all your crows were black - Jays are a type of crow and this splendid fellow is certainly not black.

I found a field guide to the Crows (and jays!) of the world in a second-hand book shop last week (and now of course its on my book shelf!) - and there are a lot of crows which are not just black.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW. Stewart M - Melbourne

Carletta said...

Stewart: Yes, related species, but the birds we call crows are all black, including legs and bill and noisy. :)

I love Jays! You have really captured this one nicely. I like his expressions. We have Stellar Jays here and Gray Jays, but no 'Blue Jays' like this. I remember this type from my childhood in New England. I really love their calls. xx

How do you capture birds so well?? I was trying to get a cardinal yesterday. They would only sit still for a half a second. Beautiful photo's!

Wonderful posts on the Blue Jay Carletta. I love to watch them outback. Fun birds to study.

This is one beautiful specimen of a blue jay. They used to bomb our heads in Palm Beach when I was a little girl. I was scared to death of them. Now, I would be thrilled to see one in the yard. These pictures are wonderful.genie

Brian King said...

Beautiful collage! Blue Jays are one of my favorites.

Amanda said...

Lovely shots with personality. I always think of hunger games when I see everyone's blue jay photos, maybe one day I'll see one.

He's a sassy fellow who knows how beautiful he is.

He looks like he has a cute personality! :-)

Amazing capture of that bluejay--great detail-so sharp and clear. Mickie :)

Wonderful images! We have a jay in the yard who has learned to imitate a hawk cry. It clears the bird feeders and all the stuff is his for awhile.
