A Blue Jay picks a seed from a feeder before taking it up to a branch to break open and eat.
A Blue Jay searches for tidbits under a hanging sunflower seed feeder .
I feed songbirds. A side effect is that seeds are scattered throughout the yard, so sunflowers spring up all over. We let them grow, flower, and go to seed.
Today a gang of eight Blue Jays descended on the sunflowers. I was able to photograph this one from the kitchen.
I was too slow to capture this Blue Jay before it moved.
