Blue Jay in a snow storm

It is 28 degrees at the log cabin and big fluffy snow flakes are coming down. I watched this Blue Jay flit from each of my bird feeders until he came to rest in this tree - perhaps to take shelter and enjoy the snowfall as well.

See now when I see it like this it looks all beautiful and romantic like. When I am actually outside in it all I can think is "I'm cold and I have to drag two little kids out of the car," well at least that was my thought this morning as I drove to church.

He's saying, "Thank You for putting out those feeders, what would I do without you!!" It's nice you are seeing some snow..we are suppose to see flurries this week!

I know that a lot of folks say bluejays are pigs at a feeder and in general make a lot of noise. But I love them,... their brilliant color and even their variety of "songs"... well, not a real bird song, but whatever you call it i like having them around. I fill my feeders often and watching all the birds is my winter fun. Great pic of that jay!

He thinks he is hiding from you.

Not many birds at my feeders yet, it isn't cold enough or snowy here yet. That's a classic winter photo you captured!

Bennie & Patsy - I am so happy to have you as a "regular" ! :-)

Denise - and it's only going to get colder.... ha,ha

Christy - LOL at dragging the kids out!

Darla- hopefully the food will warm him!

Tina - I hope the blue jay is appreciative as he seems to be the biggest piggy of all at the feeders - lol!

Cedar - like you - I still like them and admire their colors. Plus their eyes seem so intelligent.

Leedra - he gives it away w/ his loud squawking!

Deborah - I did notice after that first snowfall not only has the # of birdy visitors increased - but also the # of different varieties. I was getting tired of the sparrows and mourning doves!

The way you described it, I could almost picture the snowflakes falling, the cold air against my cheeks and that pretty bird coming into view. Beautiful winter photo. :-)
