The weather was picture perfect here in Georgia today, and I had a heavenly hour or so to sit outside and take pictures. The feeders were a flurry of activity for most of the afternoon, but the Blue Jays were by far the most frequent visitors.
Here are my eight favorite Blue Jay photos from today. Hope you enjoy them.
Enjoying the company of these fellows was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Very nice! I love blue jays.
I love them too! 🙂
What a very handsome looking bird Kathy, I love the patterns on its rear feathers, well captured!
I added the picture taken of the rear view in “hindsight.” I am glad I included it because it does show what a beautiful pattern they have on their backs.
Blue jays are among my Top Five Favorite Birds. Do you have a nesting pair on your property? One thing I learned a few years ago is that blue jays mate for life, which surprised me because I always assumed that characteristic was limited to the larger species such as geese, swans, eagles, etc.
We have some nesting nearby, but I’m not sure exactly where. I know they have reputations as being bullies, but mine are pretty sweet. I didn’t know that they mated for life – somehow that makes them even more endearing. 🙂
Such a wonderful series of photos of one of my favorites! I was happy for the blue jays up north this past week, they were the most frequent visitors, devouring everything every day. It was pretty funny though because I took up one of my older peanut feeders and we went all over God’s creation up there looking for peanuts in the shell and then when we finally found them, the jays didn’t pay that peanut feeder a bit of attention, even though we hung it right next to their favorite platform!! The only thing that ate the peanuts from the feeder were the squirrels! 🙂
I sometimes try and pretend that I am seeing them for the first time – they are so stunning!
