STOPS ALONG THE WAY

BLUE JAY

28 Comments

BluejayPeople with backyard feeders tell me they often have blue jays visit their feeders. Living in the city and having no backyard, my sightings are in the woods and far less frequent. The bird’s noisy call usually alerts me to its presence as it did so here. The jay stopped for a minute amid the fall colours.

  1. The shallow depth of field really makes the shot. Subtle colors contrasting the blues of the bird.
    Up here in the piney woods, we are fortunate to be surrounded by them.
    They are as much a part of the winter landscape as the sun on snow, the black-capped chickadees, snow-covered pines, dark-eyed juncos and the rare passing snow goose.
    A beautiful specimen.

  2. Until the last few years, I had only viewed Blue Jays from a distance. I was amazed when, with camera and bird feeder, I was able to see the marvellous patterns on their backs.

  3. Beautiful shot Bleinda! I rarely see blue jays in our area as well, although we don’t have a feeder.

  4. Nice portrait, Belinda. These are indeed noisy in their comings and goings, always scattering the smaller birds from the feeders. Kind of a neigborhood bully. 😉

  7. My husband puts out peanuts in the shell for the Blue Jays. I love to watch them swoop in and carry them away!

  12. This is an excellent shot of these beautiful birds, Belinda. Last year I saw them in my friends garden in Midland, Ontario, but I did not succeed in getting a decent photo.
