Lighthearted Limericks – Blue Jay

Today’s lighthearted limerick features the often maligned and misunderstood Blue Jay, who happens to be another of my favorite backyard visitors.  Ready for the rhyme?

I have heard Blue Jays come from the mold
of the bullyish, brutish, and bold


bluejay2But the ones that I feed
are a scared, skittish breed



I guess mine simply haven’t been told!


Although my Blue Jays truly are skittish, they can gobble up peanuts faster than any other bird I’ve seen.  I am always amazed at how many they can pack in their pouch in a single sitting!

Hope you have enjoyed this weekend’s worth of limericks. 🙂

    I think you may have inspired a mini-haiku: “Though jays some malign, I think they are fine” 😉
