I'm sorry this photo is blurry, but it was the only shot I got ... through the backdoor window. I've always been fond of blue jays, so colorful and cheeky. When I was a kid, the blue jay placemat was always mine. I don't even remember what the other birds were in that set.
They don't seem very common here, so it's a treat to see one in my yard. In the mountains, it's the gray (grey?) jays, or "camp robbers," that proliferate. If you want to see one, just take out your lunch. Seriously.
