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!

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!

Beautiful colored birds and great to have them so close. Great photos.
There's only one Harvey Bay in Queensland so possibly it's the same place you visited!

I like that peanut feeder. Now, to keep the squirrels from emptying it . . . .

Beautiful patterning on these bluejays... I see them and hear them in our yard, but have never seen one up close to admire the details of the feathers like this. Wow Karen, thanks!

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.

Wally Jones said...

Wonderful photos of the happy customers!
No doubt they will spread the word about the new bistro.

Thanks for the reminder to fill my feeder--the chickadees would have been very disappointed otherwise!

Jocee said...

Beautiful markings on their wings and tails. Great looking pair.

Jim said...

Delightful.

Phil Slade said...

Great pics Karen. I'll bet those clever jays soon sorted out the puzzle of reaching the peanuts.

KL said...

AMAZING PHOTOS...What shots...absolutely BEAUTIFUL...

Noel Morata said...

I've never realized how colorful their tail feathers are and the beautiful patterns, thanks for showing that to us.

Me said...

Awesome! These guy`s are going to cost us a fortune in peanuts.

Susie said...

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.
