The Blue Jay is one of those birds that is always a treat to see. It seems they are a cheeky bird with an air of confidence and definite good looks. Love that tuft of blue hair! We are grateful to Megan for such a great photo – this Blue Jay did not want to play ball. Megan writes: ”I had been waiting to get a shot of him for a few months and finally had my chance! Everytime I would move in the house, he would see me and fly away. Finally!” Your persistance is appreciated, Megan.
DID YOU KNOW? The Blue Jay’s crest is a little tuft of feathers, which the bird can raise if agitated or hostile. If it is afraid of something, its crest rises and shakes, but when calm & relaxed the crest is not so noticeable. The Blue Jay is the provincial bird of Prince Edward Island and the state bird of the State of New York – and the name of a pretty awesome baseball team.
