This one is really starting to look pretty. He probably feel better about going out in public. :-) Super nice, sharp image, Jeff!

Camo

Prompted by Shooz's recent hawk....

You have to love it when birds seem so self aware of their patterns....makes man-made camo look amateurish !

That is such a nice shot Greg. It seems like an odd choice of places to perch (not very comfortable)

I need to learn to only spend 10 minutes max outside... instead of cranking out the bird pics.

Well, if you had palms in Algonquin, I am sure you could train those jays of yours. It is amazing what they will do for a peanut. Sadly, no palms, so we will never know.

Greg I'm not in Algonquin, I'm just near Algonquin thankfully as it is being over whelmed with people. I all but stopped even going there. just the one time this year for a friend that was doing a book signing at the VC. Jays dont need to be trained to land on the side of tree's.. they do it all the time.
