A New Feeder

I haven't had a Blue Jay in my yard since last winter!
Today, I had a couple (as in male and female).

Obviously they like the new feeder!




The female, almost identical to the male in appearance, but smaller in size.

Feed them and they will come!

  3. I'm envious of your blue jays...we have stellar and scrubs, their cousins I guess, but not nearly such pretty feather patterns. Beautiful photos...I'm glad you got the pair!

    There's only one Harvey Bay in Queensland so possibly it's the same place you visited!

  25. That feeder looks like a bit of a challenge. So cute how those little jay claws can cling to the thinnest of branches and wires.

  34. Fantastic detail of a gregarious and joyful bird--can be a little obnoxious at times! This feeder will keep them occupied, I've love it. Have never seen this particular feeder before.
