Blue Jays

Blue-Jay

We don’t see too many of these birds in our valley. A pair of Jays have been hanging out with us this winter.
They always let me know when they are around too. I can hear them up in the trees. Their bright feathers cheer up a gray winter day.

They like to mosey around underneath the feeders. The other birds don’t especially appreciate them like I do.

Waxwings

A huge flock of Bohemian Waxwings were feeding off the Juniper Berries a few moments ago. We’ve been watching them come and go all afternoon.

Our cat is very excited as she watches from the window. Me too!  I am pretty sure these are the Bohemian.  They are very regal looking with their tufts.
