JUST JAYS

The Jays  give me enormous pleasure. It's a large bird, that at times can be noisy, but it is undeniably beautiful, and I photograph it often, well hidden of course, because if it detects the slightest movement it  flies away immediately. Here are a few images I took last year.

Hello Sonjia,
The Jays are very beautiful birds. They are in my garden too, and I love to watch them. They are very shy, and they fly away at the slightest sound.
Hugs, Marit

There's no such thing as 'just Jays' Sonjia. Every one is a fabulous bird, and all your photos do full justice to these very desrving subjects. I'll happily take more photos of Jays from you whenever you offer them - even if they will turn me a strange shade of green with envy!

Hoping that all is progressing nicely with you. Stay safe - - - Richard

your jays are so beautiful, but so different that mine!! the patch of blue is so pretty with the black stripes, their heads appear to be rose colored. your images are gorgeous highlighting all of those pretty markings!!

Hello Sonjia, Lovely pictures of a bird that I have not seen for more than a year. All down to the pollution of our local rivers or so I am led to believe. Take care.
Mike.

You know, Sonjia, I never consider the sounds of nature annoying or intrusive no matter how loud or raucous they may be. These jays, (wonderful, gorgeous birds by the way) are communicating with each other, or sounding warnings and it is not for us to judge whether we like their calls or not, so your attitude to them is spot on. Think of the noise of screeching brakes, or a loud-mouthed drunk, and the cries of the jay will sound musical indeed. Any time you want to show me pictures of jays feel free to do so and I will be a happy man. I will even play their song/call while I look at the pictures so I get the full atmosphere of the moment. Take good cate. All the best. David

Jays are beautiful. I do see birds visiting my garden but I don't see Jays among them. The birds are always too fast for me to take snapshots of them. Have a wonderful weekend.

They are so pretty, even a little mischievous, like parrots. They usually come her too, during winter, but I haven't seen them yet. Beautiful photos!

They are beautiful with those blue feathers on their sides! Great photos!

Just Jays is not quite true. your jays are so much prettier than our jays, although ours have more blue. they are gorgeous birds. Our Jays are LOUD, the screech and attack other birds and do make a racket. we like them anyway. so happy to see you in blog land

Hola Sonjia, los Arrendajos son sin duda bonitos y muy abundantes aquí y es muy difícil llegar al bosque y que ellos no den la voz de alarma. Preciosas fotos. Besos.

Teresa said...

Es un pájaro que me encanta, las fotografías te han quedado preciosas. Besos.
