When the forecast calls for snow, people go a bit crazy here in the south. Everyone heads to the grocery store in a frenzy, frantically stock-piling the necessities of milk, bread and toilet paper. I, too, join the maddening crowd, but my necessities run along the lines of Folgers and Entenmann cinnamon donuts – the ones with the crumb topping.
Once the white stuff covers the ground, like it did this morning, the birds show up in their own frenzy. My Blue Jays were up early, frantically squawking until I laid out a spread of peanuts. Then they showed up, one after another, to load up on this necessity. Here are seven that stopped by today.
And now, off for a cup of coffee and a donut!

beautiful photos of the background, and this lovely bird.
Thanks. I never get bored of thoseBlue Jays.
I had to go get wine, catfood & half n’ half for the coffee. I love Greedy Gus in the next to last photo stocking up on peanuts.
Oh yes…half and half is also a must!
You were lucky to get snow Kathy! We got sleet and freezing rain instead in Paulding County. Nice shots! 🙂
The snow was on top of the sleet. My road is still frozen over. But it was fun to get out with the camera in the cold. 😊
Lol. Love your necessities list Kathy!! 😝
The snow adds a beautiful touch to the Blue Jays!
I love the way they look in the snow. Very wintry. 😊
Winter is a good time of the year! Great post!
Your blue jays just ooze personality! How dull winter would be if we didn’t have our bird friends to enjoy!
I think that’s why I so enjoy taking pictures of these guys – their personality is not hidden!
You definitely have a bunch of peanutty blue jays. LOL My greedy little feathered friends are emptying the feeder faster than I can refill it.
I think it amazing how these birds do so well in the snow Kathy!
As long as I keep bringing them peanuts!
LOL! So true about Southerners and snow! Love these photos. Blue Jays are such characters. They sit in our trees or on our railing if we are inside and dance up and down and screech art my husband to let him know the feeders are low. Love them!
They really do let you know, don’t they!
Beautiful pictures! I think I’ll need to buy some peanuts, throw them out at the salt marsh and hide to see the visitors 🙂
Great pics. Love these hungry fellows.
I can’t quite figure out why I find them so endearing!
Are you sure it was 7 different birds? Maybe just 2 really hungry ones? In any case, I am just in awe of your photos as always. So lovely and they demonstrate your love for the birds so clearly. Thank you for sharing them.
You are most welcome. And I don’t know if there are seven different in the photos, but there were at least a dozen hanging about on the branches, swooping in one after another. 🙂
