There is a fair bit of bird activity in and through our back yard this year. Usually, I am inside or on the back deck when it happens and nowhere near my camera. The moment I go inside to grab the camera and then exit into the yard, the birds are nowhere to be seen.
For some reason, the jays have been flipping and flapping through my yard, perhaps looking for food, harassing the sparrow nests, going for a dip in the bird bath or hiding the peanuts in shell that the neighbour puts out for them.
In any case, it is always nice to see such a pretty bird and even their scolding calls are a pleasant change from the incessant cawing of the crows.
