The only watery photos I took this week was of this Blue Jay. He was the first one to use the new dish I bought a few days ago from the garden center. I am using it as a bird bath and this afternoon I filled it for the first time and put it out on the back deck. He looked at it, looked at me, took a couple of sips, looked at me again and flew back up into the trees.
These are the birds who have me well trained. When I hear their urgent chirps I find myself automatically grabbing handfuls of peanuts (in shells) and tossing them out. It's a race in time to see who is the fastest, the squirrels or the Blue Jays. Usually the Blue Jays win out as they swoop down and quickly make off with each peanut. They are very entertaining.
