  2. I see these birds quite often Camilla. Such a lovely bird, especially in flight when you see the blue flash..

  6. I like Jays – they’re usually quite brash over here. And noisy. And mainly blue, like your Jay’s wing bar. Beautiful shot!

    • Thanks Lynn! I *wish* we had Blue Jays over here, I’ve never seen one in real life.. Last year I visited WA and saw Stellar’s Jay, they were really cool too πŸ™‚

      • You were a long way from home! If you come this way again let me know. The Steller’s jays are very amusing – they always make a racket and draw one’s attention, and they always have an alarmed look about them. We have a standard square suet feeder – like a little cage that a square suet cake goes in – and every other bird has figured out how to lock their feet onto the cage and feast on the suet, but not “Stella” – Stella flies at it and just cannot grasp it, I don’t know why. Endlessly entertaining!

        • I will let you know next time! Yes, I’m *sure* it will be a ‘next time’ because I love the area. πŸ™‚

  8. Very nice picture! It looks 3D, you can almost touch the bird!

    • Thanks Edwin! I took this picture on my way back from Diemen.. It may look like I was close to the bird, but it was actually quite far away.. No touching! πŸ˜‰
