Jays

The Jay  
 Garrulus glandarius

 

 

 

 
In the woods where we live there have been far more Jays than usual this year, so I have taken many photos to share.

I think so too! It doesn't matter how many times I see them, I still think they are stars.

Hi Vitor:)

They are our neighbours in spring and summer, and come to the garden every day for peanuts. Most of them have left now, until next year.

Dear Rita,Thank you so much:) I have had the pleasure of their visits every day since April. I love to hear their noisy arrival,
and see them hopping around the garden, where I'm concealed inside my hide.
Have a good week Rita dear.
Hugs and kisses.
