Blue Jay

Blue Jay Cyanocitta cristata
3 May 2013

    Blue Jays undertake a kind of leap-frog migration with birds from farther north migrating south in the fall, over-flying the resident individuals in this area. Recently we have noticed several large flocks of returning migrants and today five of these birds paused to rest and feed in our back yard.
