Some Stellar's Jays on our deck

Some birds that frequent us ...

We have a family of Stellar's Jays that hang out on our back deck ... extremely noisy and territorial ... they even drove off a few crows whilst the nuts were being offered. I felt that they would even take them (the nuts) from my fingers if I persevered. They have no fear of humans - I was able to get pretty up close to them today ...

Thanks for looking - cheers Phil

They are amazing birds. Stellar Jays love to dig a hole in the ground and "plant" the seeds that they have gathered, putting it away for a rainy day. There are quite a few trees growing in our forests because of them.

Really beautiful photos! I would like to borrow one for my Facebook page.
