We tend to take Blue Jays for granted here because they are so common, but they are exquisitely beautiful birds that deserve great attention.

You are sharing two of my favorite backyard visitors Karen, and I enjoyed your photos tremendously. The squirrel looks like he is posing for you. I love seeing a black squirrel, we don't get them around here and have only seen them on road trips up north. Great photos!
