A couple more shots from yesterday morning. These guys sure let me know when the peanuts are gone. Quite a lot of squawking going on, with 10 of them out there in the yard.:lol:

Wow, this bird is beautiful.
It looks like a cross between a timouse and a blue jay.

Steve, I have 24, all day every day, and now the squirrels have nested again, and there are little tree rats everywhere as well! ACH!

Nice photo that last one.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Ditto.

These are great shots Steve, and I like your Scrub Jays too. Both very pretty birds. I guess they're not so unlike our Bluejays, loud and boisterous but also beautiful.

nice work as usual,

You sure have some pretty ones Steve. Great captures. The Blue jays here are almost the same, when they come in, they sure let everyone know about it.

The BG and light you get on your yard perch is always so great, along with the usual fine detail and colors of your shots... such a pretty bird.
