Blue Jay Perched On Bird Feeder - July 2020


This isn't a net new entry to the [bird visitor log] here on the blog as I've already documented the Blue Jay in March of 2019 here.  But, I spotted this beauty the other day hanging out by the feeders and he was showing off his blue feathers for a minute or two.  I snapped the photo above (and below) with my phone real quick before he flew off.   Above, he's showing off his full colors on his back.  Below, he's facing the house.


I dug around a little bit on the web and learned that Blue Jays are part of the Corvidae family - which is the same family as crows - that we commonly call "Corvids".
