The breeding season for blue jays is quite long, from March to July. In a given locale, mating pairs emerge from the courtship groups at any time during this five month season.
This pair was courting in the protection of the cedar tree during the blizzard.
Male and female Blue Jays are almost identical in appearance.
Males are just slightly larger than females.
Displaying quiet ritualistic feeding behaviors,
which indicates they will be a mating couple.
Also braving the storm, a black squirrel.
