I have blue jays here all the time. We don’t have quite as many this year as we have in previous years. We used to have as many as 3 pairs hanging around. We probably only have one pair and couple that are single and ready to mingle that stop by once in a while this year. One of my goals with feeder cam has been to get all of our local birds and regulars photographed. It’s one of the reasons I wanted to place the camera on the main large platform. That is the Blue Jays favorite dining spot besides the peanut feeder. I even put whole peanuts to try to entice them!
Yet, most of my blue jay photos look like these.
I’m glad at least we finally got a picture of one! He did eventually sit still long enough for a few pictures, but never turned to the side to show all of his beautiful color. We’ll keep at it!
