Feb 2010 ~ Did I say I love snow??? As of this evening it’s been snowing for over 24 hours and we have 16 new inches of snow on top of the 14 from this past weekend. I’m ready for spring now!!! I shoveled the path to my bird feeders at least 5 times today. This Blue Jay was one of many birds at my feeders today.

The Blue Jay is a large light blue and white bird with a black necklace. The crest moves up and down at will. Non to partial migrator – will move to find food. Frequent visitor at bird feeders, eating seeds, insects, fruit, and nuts. Highly intelligent bird that will scream like a hawk to scatter birds at a feeder.
