I figured he would fly away if I opened the kitchen window so I had to settle for a shot behind the glass window. He spent a good amount of time on the water feature and a female cardinal came by a few times to try to get him to move, but it did'nt work. He really likes that spot!

If you get a running water source it will bring in birds that otherwise would avoid sitting water.
My pond in my backyard often brings in Red Crossbills. However, they are incredibly spooky and require a completely solid blind that shows no signs of movement.

Nice captures of those Crossbills! The first picture looks like you may have also captured a small mosquito in flight towards the left corner above the back of the Crossbill.

Thanks, I contemplated whether or not to clone out the midge, but I decided to keep it :D

Is that normal for all the birds or just for blue jay? I seldom see birds like that. Maybe they are hiding at that time LOL

I don't know about all, but many birds do molt and regrow their feathers. I had some shots of some really scruffy looking Cardinals a few weeks ago.
