Earlier this year Mr C and I both noticed that there were no Blue Jays to be seen at the feeders, while in the past they were plentiful.
I’m not sure where they were but they are back in force! At one time I counted 15 at the same time.
I know some folks don’t like them. But we enjoy their spot-on hawk imitations and bold behaviors.
They even inspired me to pick up my paintbrush.
