Growing up, there was a cartoon on TV called “The Green Forest”. In it, there was a character called Sammy Jay, who was a bit of a villain. Mostly he was a bully and a tattletale. I’m convinced this is why, when Dave hears the blue jays outside, he tenses up.
I however, love them!
We’ve got four of them hanging around, and they are regular patrons at Squirrelington’s.
Especially in the morning. I love this picture because you can see the black squirrel in the background with a peanut in her mouth. The squirrels and jays alternate, each taking peanuts until the pile is all gone.
And then they send one of the squirrels up to stare in at me until I fill the table again.
Then they feast again!
I’m going through about 2 lbs of peanuts a week! But it’s worth it!
