Two juvenile Blue Jays showed up for a visit yesterday afternoon. The first was probably a late spring baby, whose youth was evidenced more by his actions than his appearance. He landed on the deck rail and looked at me quite curiously.
Then he proceeded to nibble from the seed try.
The second Blue Jay was much younger and arrived with open-beaked bravado. He perched on a nearby branch to scope out the food offerings, loudly warning anyone who was listening that he was a bird to be reckoned with!
He seemed delighted to discover the peanuts I had hidden in the nook of the Dogwood.
There’s something endearing about these two youngsters. 🙂

They are so cute!
Cute…and loud! 🙂
I agree! Such fun characters! 🙂
I’ve had a couple juvy Blue Jays visit my feeder before, and they would vie for the prize perch on the seed tray. They were so cute! Thank you for bringing back those memories! Your pictures turned out a lot better than mine though… 🙂
They really are endearing! I’ve had several here, too, and they always make me grin. (Oh, and I’ve had some “awkwards” here, too. Always makes me think of you now. 🙂
Great photos of a bossy but a fun bird to watch!
Love your new juvies! For some unexplainable reason, the second one’s attitude reminds me of ‘The Fonz’ , especially the first shot of him at the dogwood — remember how The Fonz used to whack the jukebox? 😉 (apologies if I’m showing my age here, LOL)
Well…if I hadn’t already named him Gulliver, I might have named him Fonzie! And I remember that show well…dating myself too!
