Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday - Blue Jay series.

I sprinkled some seed on the deck out back and one of the first to arrive was the Blue Jay.











I am joining in with Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday which you can find here.

they are just handsome birds - even if we take them for granted. :)

They are such spectacular and greedy birds. Great shots Denise.

Sorry I have had not a single flower to post for sundays. All my reserves are locked up in my dead computer.

Great pictures of the blue jay. You gave me an idea, too. I might sprinkle some bird seed on the banister of our picnic pavilion the next time I am sitting out there. It would be interesting to see what comes to eat it.

The blue jays are missing from this area it seems and they use to be so plentiful -- perhaps it's our seed - know they like peanuts.

What fabulous photos!
I have no blue jays right now, but used to ha ve several who were so tame they would pluck peanuts out from between my toes as I lay in the garden. Birds are so enchanting.

Carletta said...

Yep, they usually show right up and take all they can get. :)
You got some wonderful shots Denise! I really think the jays are a beautiful bird.

Knowing its completely impossible but none-the-less if I saw a Blue Jay in my backyard I'd go crazy!! It's sooo beautiful!!

Pretty shots of the Bluejay, Denise! They are little piggies! Have a great day!

These really are wonderful birds - the colour is remarkable. In fact that shade of blue is similar to the blue wrens in my pictures.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW
