This is one of four bald-headed Blue Jays that have been visiting this week. At first I was quite concerned. I've heard that birds molt twice a year, and there does seem to be some evidence that the feathers are growing back. Or is he part of a family of young birds who are just developing their feathers which have yet to reach the head? Much preferable to the idea that the poor things have bird mites. Can anyone out there with more knowledge about such things tell for sure by looking at this photo?
