The first time I saw this beautiful blue jay, he/she took my breath away.
There are two of them, male & female, who appear to live in one of the trees in our front yard. Occasionally, they come to the back deck and eat the seeds that fall from the bird feeder that we have out. They are a tad too large to eat from the feeder itself.
Did ya know … male and female blue jays are very hard to tell apart unless they are “handled” and a “breeding” patch is found under the female.
