Barbara - birds can lose feathers because of mites, but the Blue Jays that I see in my yard during August that have bald heads have just lost their head feathers all at one time during a regular molt. They usually molt gradually so we barely notice. Don't worry, they grow back!
Thanks so much for your nice feedback!


Goodness that poor bird - what happened to its feathers on its head Nancy?

Love all your faqs and your posts... great stuff to read and think about.

  • 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.
