In the Wind

Here’s a Stellar’s Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri) having a bad hair day, thanks to the wind! It’s sitting in our Empress tree. The brown objects are flower buds which have been on the tree all winter and will soon bloom in lovely purple flowers!

Here’s the resident Stellar’s Jay giving me what for because the peanuts are all gone!  It’s already taken them all and hidden them all around the yard.  This is an immature  bird and has become a regular in the yard.  It has a sibling that tags along!
