Lucky Jay! He found a peanut -- and great place to go for more I bet. Lovely pictures...I love the pattern on the feathers. The jays we see most often are the plainer kind.

I'm back, and want to thank you for linking up at the Bird D'Pot at I'd Rather B Birdin'. Your blue jay entry is marvelous, and I so envy you having them in your back yard. We don't see them this far south, so I hafta see their beauty with your shares.
