Blue Jay in the Sugar Maple

While all the trees are leafing out, the sugar maple only seems to have buds. It made for a clear shot of this blue jay. Maybe he was one of the jays who used to come to the feeders in the small garden and now wanders by occasionally to see if I've given in and put them back out.

Will his curiosity and patience be rewarded? Just kidding ;-)

Blue jays are so beautiful, but they certainly fit the old saying of "Beauty is, as beauty does." (Do I have that right?)

I'll feed the birds for another week or two, to use up the food, but by then they will have gone out into the woods for food, so won't visit the feeders anyway! Super photo of the blue jay!

What a beautiful bird, great picture!

Anyes: Not until late in the fall. He'll have a long wait.

SG: You do have it right. Jays are gorgeous, but their calls are annoying (at least to me).

Anne: I just get mourning doves and robins as regular visitors now. The robins are looking for earthworms in the small garden and the doves visit the birdbath.

Dan: Thank you!
