Peanuts

Peanuts Jay a jamiesbirds

I have a young Blue Jay who comes to my Magnolia tree and chortles, asking for a peanut.

Then he flies down gets one and goes back into the tree to eat it. He then chortles again and flies off with the second peanut. That’s why I call him Peanuts.  He also loves to swim.

All of the photos above were taken in North Carolina. The two photos below were taken in New York last spring. This mother sparrow raised babies in the support post that holds up a traffic light on the corner of my street in the West Village (corner of Bleecher and Bank Streets) in Manhattan.  The photos speak for themselves; click to enlarge to see babies.
