Blue Jay in the old tree

Think he is checking me out?
This is one of the birds at Rockwood, you can see why I want Jimmy to keep the feeders filled. Jimmy broke down and filled the feeders during his lunch hour yesterday. He said by the time he got off work they had eaten quite a bit. He will fill to the very top before he leaves on Friday. I have seen as many as 12 different types of birds in a 2 hour span. There are 3 pairs of Blue Jays and 3 pairs of Northern Cardinals. Jimmy also saw 3 Sapsuckers yesterday, but they are not at the feeders, just the Oak tree.

Nice pictures! I am looking forward to seeing more (and hitting you up for advice - I am a wanna-be photographer!).

Love you jay pictures, Leedra. I saw the one on your photography site first. Both pictures are good though.

Great photos. I can see why you want Jimmy to keep the feeders filled so you can see all the different types of birds. Can't wait to see more photos from the Rockwood house.
