Fantastic shots–we enjoy watching the local birds here as well.
Terrific series, Linda! Especially love the “in flight” photos. Very fine work!
Thanks for your kind comment Julie. I love watching the scrubbies, even though their peanut consumption is expensive!
that first shot is amazing, love it. a bird I have not yet seen.
Thanks Dan. Right now I have about a dozen Western Scrub Jays enthusiastically enjoying the peanut feeders. Hope they stay for awhile.
Absolutely beautiful! That “wings” shot makes my heart sing :)
Thanks Kerri. I’m always absolutely tickled when I get a BIF photo that’s in focus. :)
beautiful, Linda. Incredible blue color as well as catching the bird in flight.
I love the Western Scrub Jays and their brilliant colors. The BIF photo was a bonus!
Beautiful photos! I have never seen those type of birds before, what species are they?
Thank for your kind comment. They are Western Scrub Jays.
Beautifully captured Linda. I can feel the excitement. Jays and peanuts make for some fun birding/photog experiences. I have Bluejays here in Illinois. They love peanuts as well, it is a joy to watch them. I hope to see the beautiful Western Scrub Jay one day. Love the first shot in flight!
Thanks Debbie. Jays and peanuts are a fun combination, that’s for sure. You should come to visit! :)
Wonderful “in flight” photographs. I really like members of the jay family. In the northeast we only have the ubiquitous blue jay and it is an important part of our upland forest ecosystem. When I journey north into the boreal forest of Quebec I really enjoy catching canada jays which are a little more reclusive than the common blue jay.
