Corvid 2020 Weekly challenge 12 is new to me. It seems to be about black birds and their relatives,of which Jay Birds are a member. I have a family of jays nesting in the bushes outside my kitchen window. They don’t make the best neighbors: they are noisy and gluttonous, they eat all the birdseed and scare away the song birds. .
They are, however, good gardeners. A few years back, one dropped sunflower seeds from the feeder which sprouted and gave my quite a nice crop of yellow sunflowers.
The good thing about jays is that they add a nice flash of color to the garden, and are really good at posing.
And finally: they never will take responsibility for their actions…
Hooray! The first jays in the challenge. I was hoping some would make an appearance. Thank you, Carol.
I scatter leftover canary seed from my indoor bird on the ground outside rather than putting it in a dish. That way the bossy birds don’t get it all. 🙂

So happy to share our bossy jay. You must not have kitties. Extra seeds on the ground gives cats a bird snack bar. 😺
That is true, Carol. I do not have kitties. I never thought of that.
The neighbors calico visits most days. She keeps thinking she can get the hummingbird. Ha!
