Sadly we've never seen a jay up close before, that is until yesterday. I threw a handful of peanuts out on the patio and a jay appeared and gobbled them all up. He was only about 5' away from me, although I was safely behind the patio doors. He knew I was there, but didn't seem to mind.
Made my day!
|Stuffing his face!|
|Such beautiful colours and markings|
|He even gave me a little wave to say thanks for the peanuts!|
Needless to say Bug Mad Girl was furious that school had ruined everything again and made her miss seeing it! We will be putting out peanuts again at the weekend, as she's desperate to see it for herself.
