Feather Friday

Today's Feather Friday bird is the Western Scrub Jay. The Western Scrub Jay is a permanent resident of the pine forests of the west. It interbreeds with the Blue Jay, where their ranges meet in the Rockies.In winter it moves into more open country and becomes a regular visitor to feeders. This is yet another bird that hangs around our back yard. The Western Scrub Jay is a crestless jay, has a blue head, wings, tail, gray mask, back, pale gray underparts. Dark-streaked, white throat bordered by dark necklace. The bill, legs, feet are black. It eats grains, fruits, insects, frogs, lizards and eggs and young of other birds. It flies with steady wing beats. It is a very pretty bird, but selfish. It does not share the feeder with any other bird. It's harsh shaak scares others away. Suet attracts these jays, but they also eat bread that I throw out on the lawn!

That is one cool birdie. We have blue jays, butt we don't have to scrubb them. I think they wouldn't like it much.

that is a beautiful Blue Jay Cousin Rambo. My mommy used to have one that she named Big Bird. he started wild, but domesticated himself to the point that our family would leave the sliding glass door open and he would fly in and hang out on the back of the sofa with us and eat peanuts with us.

They are really beautiful and SO intelligent!

Tail Wiggles & Puppy Kisses,
