Everything was okay until Bluejay-Zilla showed up a the feeder.
Fledgling Blue Jay
A fledgling blue jay hopped onto the deck rail, not sure what to do, so he talked about it. The bird water bowl is right there and no doubt it’s a regular stop for the bird’s parents, but he didn’t seem to get the idea, instead flying off.
I photographed this through the screen on my back door which softened the focus and added a little refraction to the highlights, and I kind of like the effect.
Blue jays are always certain they are the center of the universe, and anything they have is the best thing ever. This blue jay has a seed, it’s just like any other seed from the feeder, but this one is his and it’s better than all the rest and he’s telling the world about it.
