Jay – Garrulus Glandarius

During the years I have made countless attempts to, at least, get one good photo of a jay. But, no ! They are shy, they a super quick to fly away or they hide behind a branch. Today, I couldn’t believe my eyes. One sat in the apple tree right outside our bedroom looking right at me. It’s a gray rainy day. Maybe he wanted to come in. I grabbed the camera and shot a couple of shots through the window. Then went out to perhaps be able to shoot more photos. But, he already had moved on to sit high up in a tree on the neighbor’s side.

      Hi navasolanature and thank you for your comment 🙂 Unfortunately most birds are so hard to photograph. I am so happy this one stayed long enough in the tree for me to shoot the photos.

      Hi and thank you Tokens of Companionship 🙂 I looked up blue jays on Google. Such a beautiful bird. I read on Wikipedia that the Eurasian jay and blue jay belong to the same family, Corvidae.
