Swinging Blue Jays!

Every morning the Herbal Husband whistles and feeds the birds. Here is the peanut caddy in our Japanese maple. The blue jays, cardinals and titmice love it. The caddy swings back and forth for several minutes. It does not take long for the peanuts to disappear. This next story is entirely true. We also feed a group of crows. They will come below the caddy and wait for any peanuts that drop to the ground. On occasion, the blue jay will toss a peanut to the crow and the crow catches it! I'm not making it up! I'm just sorry you have to imagine it. Maybe some day, I'll get a picture or video of it happening! Remember your feathered friends during the winter.
