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.

Taken in my backyard, 2/10/10, Clarks Valley, PA

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.

Natural photo – just cropping.

    He is so beautiful, brilliant capture. I am ready for Spring now also, it is real unseasonal here in Utah, the snow has really abated down in the valley and what we do have on the ground has melted back.

  • Thank you!!!
