Talented BluJay

Actually a Scrub Jay. About 4 years ago this jay came for a backyard visit. It was much friendlier than the others that came by. I noticed it would come much closer and not be as afraid. Anyway, I started feeding it by hand then tried to see if it would take a peanut from my mouth. Here is the result. Not a very good quality video, as it was an old camera.

He/she disappeared for at least 18 months, then suddenly appeared a couple months ago. Didn't know at first if it was the same one because there were three of them hanging around. I put some peanuts on the railing in the front balcony and Blu landed and just sat there. Didn't pick up a nut. I went back in the house, got another peanut and stuck out my hand. Sure enough, Blu hops down and takes it from my hand. I fed her a few more nuts this way. Then the other two scrubs sort of chased Blu away. Haven't seen her since. We await her return.

VERY cool! I love jays. I know some people think they are a nuisance, but I had a tame one as a kid too.

Now… is the background music yours too?!?!

That's awesome! I feed the backyard birds the old fashion way but I like your way much more. I bet Blu will be back.
