Blue Jays

As I promised yesterday, here are some photos of the blue jay and her nest.

I have only seen one mouth so far, but then I can't see the entire nest from my vantage point out on the deck.

Well, gotta scoot...I'm late putting out the mealworms today.

Great shots of the mother bird. We have a swallow nest on the porch, but they're so close to the ceiling I don't think they'll be easy to photo.
Hi Adrienne, We've got alot of Bluejays areound here--but I've never seen their nests... You got some great photos.

I have never seen a blue jay nest but I got the parents here now feeding a baby that looks almost identical to them. I guess that is normal. It is not as demanding as some other baby birds.

I took a series of photos of one eating half of a peanut while perched on a limb. How it kept its toes curled around the peanut and only lifting the toe to pinch off a piece.

I like your bird photos a lot.

You are so fortunate to have such a wealth of bird life
So wonderfully exciting! I love this! : ).
I believe there are two babies. Yesterday, I was weeding in the bed under her tree, and I saw the mother alternating between two upstretched mouths.
