Blue Jays Again

Before you read any further,if you don't like Blue Jays,you should go do something different than reading this post.
For those who enjoy the antics of this bird I share with you some more feeder action.

I don't think these pictures need a lot of words,so enjoy them if you will.I know I did.






Sometimes the only way to get what you want is to do a head stand.

I do have many more images similar to these,but because I would like to keep at least most of my followers,I will refrain from posting them right now.
I may however throw in a picture or two as I go along.


Thought for today:

Oh, I really enjoy the Blue Jays. I wish they'd visit here more often. Sometimes, it's several years between seeing them.

Kerri Farley said...

I LOVE them all!!

Janice K said...

The color in those pictures are so beautiful....and tat one with the wings outspread--WoW!

I think they are beautiful birds...I guess I have never been over-run with them.

I love any blue birds and Blue Jays are very blue! Delightful series following their antics.

Nancy said...

Looks like he's working hard. I've been watching a family come to the feeder for about a week now.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

That first one, with the wings flared out, is just a splendid photograph. The others all made me smile at the antics of that jay. I may have to invest in one of those peanut feeders myself.

I know they are pesky creatures but I do like them! Great photos!

Ginny Hartzler said...

Great images, I especially love the one with the peanut in his beak. I have got to get me one of these...the feeder that is, not the bird.

Elaine said...

Beautiful images and so full of color! The blue jays are so much more colorful than the gray jays we have here.

These are wonderful. Don't worry about keeping your followers - you have us eating out of your hand. Post whatever your want and we enjoy! These are great - looks like they really have to work to get the peanuts - good idea.

Some pictures just don't need words. These are wonderful.

Pat said...

That bluebird is gorgeous, and very resourceful, too!

Tracy said...

Ruth, are the shelled peanuts what blue jays eat? I just realized that was what they had in their mouth...just gorgeous!

Unknown said...

They are beautiful!!!! I love their feeder, I have never seen one like this!!! Is it handmade or did you buy this?
Hugs,
Chris :o)

Shug said...

Oh now....I am loving that first picture...absolutely perfect!!

I saw one of the prettiest birds today and I thought of you, because I know how much you love birds..
This was a Red headed woodpecker, but it's colors were SO VIBRANT...have never seen one with the deep colors like this one...
hugs.

Tammy said...

Who can turn down seeing a jay? :)

I love this! I have to get one of those feeders! A lot more attractive than most of the ones that I have and what fun the birds seem to be having.

Beautiful photos, Ruth. I love Jays.. they're clever and bold. The colours in these images are just so vibrant. Well done.

Cicero Sings said...

Blue Jays are SUCH characters!

EG CameraGirl said...

Delightful! I don't think you could possibly show me too many blue jay photos if they were all like these.

Dianne ... Walking In His Grace said...

What a cool feeder. I wonder what the squirrels would do with that? I love Blue Jays and these are really cool pictures. You must have had so much fun watching and photographing them. Look forward to many more photos of the Blue Jays.
Have a great week ahead and thank you for stopping by and leaving your comment. It was very thoughtful and encouraging.
Dianne :)
