Barbara - good to hear that "jays are jays" wherever they are! Thanks for your nice comments.
Hi Sherry and welcome to you from Austin! I just returned from a week in San Antonio. Mid-90s all week and it reaffirmed why I love living in the moderate clime of upstate NY! Thanks for your visit and comment.

Your photos are so refreshing...here in Austin, Tx we are experiencing a severe drought. The birds gather at any available water source and other wildlife appear in neighborhood yards in search of precious water and food. Keeping feeders and bird baths full is a challenge in this triple digit heat.


Great photos and so much fun with those greedy jays - same up here in Ontario - they ignore the rain and are delighted that there is no competition for the seed... Well done Nancy - great photos as I said.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
