Lining up for breakfast
Here are the scrub jays. Finally caught them in action, removing all the sunflower seeds from the mixed assortment offered this a.m.
It doesn't take them long to get all the best seeds, only leftovers for the others. Scrub jays usually stash most of the sunflower seeds--and dog food when they can get it--for another day.
Foul-weathered friend While Artemis was here, we didn't see many scrub jays at all. She still stops in briefly, to see what's going on, but apparently has moved on to other hunting grounds now that the snow is gone-- much to the relief of the feathered flocks.
