Blue Jay

(Toledo, OH) Sure, they squawk and harass other birds near my feeders, but I always appreciate the aggressive and gregarious blue jays who populate my neighborhood.

The other day I was feeding squirrels some peanuts, and a jay swooped down and snatched a peanut milliseconds before one of the squirrels could pick it up. The bird had to be watching the human-squirrel interactions for a few moments before deciding to dive-bomb the rodents.

You have to admire the pluck of blue jays, one of whom now exist forever on this blog and on my laptop.
