:lolup

IP, these lil fuckers are starting to annoy me this AM.

Theres this one today, lurking bout my bedroom window, hardlooking me, and gawking at me bigtime, why must they gawk so I ask?

Its like hes trying to get my goat :wtf

Bright fellows indeed

Well said :thumbsup

They are irritating peckerheads.

Bothersome bored brats

Taking out their boredom on the rest of civilization,

On their quest, and mission in life, to go pick fights.

Heckling and tormenting mockers they remain

Their humor couched in dripping disdain for others

They drive me crazy.

They are pretty until they open their beaks. :biglaugh

They wake me up when camping then lurk around the campsite waiting to steal the food right out of your mouth. :tantrum

Nice pic FF. We don't get that kind here,just grey jays and stellers.

I can't take credit for the pic. I googled it. :thankyou

I've tried many times to take pics of blue jays while out camping, but they are fast little suckers.

Most of the Blue Jays here were chased away by the Starlings.

Once upon a morning sunny, while Bard pondered pluck and funny,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten posts,
While he nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at his chamber pane.
" 'Tis some visitor," he muttered, "tapping at my chamber pane-
Only this, I'm not insane".

They're OK; in fact birds other than Starlings are all right. I hate Starlings.

Bluebirds, with their wondeful song, have been chased away by those goddamn starlings. Blue Jays hold their own against grackles; in fact BJs are quite defensive. About the nearest area where there are bluebirds is just beyond Oakland County. I've seen them by the lake where I used to take Clementine.

I love Blue Jays. They are nice to look at, especially during the dismal winter snows. I love their call as well.

The Eastern Blue Birds have really been decimated by Sparrows. Sparrows are the rat of the bird world. I tried some new design blue bird houses a couple of years ago. Still waiting. We used to get 'em all the time, but no more.

As if on queue a blue jay parked itself in the little tree outside my bedroom window this morning and did this
