We have lived here for almost 11 years and rarely see Blue Jays. In the past 2 days saw 1 yesterday and 2 today feeding on our feeder. It was still a bit dark so it was hard to get good photos, I managed 3 out of many. When the snow came, so did the Grouse. We still see the Northern Flickers, this one’s a female.
Waldy also took down that wasp nest and as it was up against the house, the back of it was open (no wasps in residence, workers are dead the the queen has left to find a cozy place to rest during the winter). It is really interesting to see how they build the nest.
Note: I wish I could control what photos shows up on the post page, I know the title says Blue Jays but it shows the wasp nest… sorry.
