Well, looks like we are in for those dreary days for a few now. Yuck. This was taken on a dreary morning in very late December. I had my 500mm lens with me but the 300mm was blurring if they moved even a little so did what I could. This was taken while this Blue Jay was sitting in the in-law's Ornamental Pear tree. It was wanting some peanuts. I liked this view of it because it really showed off it's markings. They say Blue Jays are bullies but I have not really seen evidence of that. They squawk very loudly when they want their peanuts but they don't seem to bother other birds.
