Sometimes you feel like a nut ....

....or two or three! The Blue Jays LOVE nuts ~ shelled or unshelled ~ any way you serve them up ~ they love them. If I buy them shelled I make sure that they are unsalted. I LOVE the beauty of their "blueness" ~ such lovely feathers. I know there are some that have found them to be very agressive. That has not been a problem at my feeders. This guy was quite a treat to watch ~ he seemed to want to gobble up as many nuts as he could.

It would so exciting to see one of these beautiful birds. We do have Blue Jays in Saskatchewan, but more in the heavily wooded areas. Such a wonderful photo Kerri!

Valerie said...

Love this photo! I posted a blue jay this morning in the dewy grass over at Intelligent Expressions. Mine looked very dirty though - maybe just grey.

Have a great day!

We have blue jays all year round at our feeders and their glorious color just takes your breath a way. Great shot of the little pig!

Yes, sometimes you feel like a bunch of nuts! lol!

Blue Jays have a look all their own. So distinguished.

Kathy said...

Magic - I love nuts too.

Awesome shot, Kerri! Love the profile!

I put out a feeder for the goldfinches last week, and they finally found it, so I've been sitting by the backdoor watching them eat nyjer. It's relaxing to just watch the birds eat
: )

Ha! You caught him in the act!

Great shot of the bluejay. They do love the peanuts.

Hilary said...

Oh isn't he just a beauty! I watched one being chased off by a cardinal this morning. Kind of the opposite of what I'd expected. That's a wonderful shot!

Kerri,
I enjoy our blue jays, too. We don't have trouble with them at the feeders. But they do cause problems for other nesting songbirds. Still, I love watching them. They wait for me each morning to put out mealworms.

Barb said...

Priceless photo, Kerri - he is definitely gorging at the bird buffet.

Misty Dawn said...

This is gorgeous Kerri! Absolutely sharp and beautiful.

Kelly said...

...look at that beauty. You can see he's filling up his gular pouch too! Lovely photo...

Mary said...

Great shot! They do like to grab a mouthful, don't they? Greedy.

Johnny Nutcase said...

Love it! Gave me a huge smile, thank you :)

Sue said...

Great photo!! I love bluejays...they are so cheeky and expressive...even if a bit noisy!!! Ours are a different variety here..with a crest.

Joanna Durczok said...

Amazing bird! I've never seen this species in my life. I don't think it lives in Poland. We've got Jays here, but they look different.

As for the shot - great capturing of a moment, composition, colours and sharpness are also perfect:)
