Baby Blue

Hmmm, this looks like a nice home.

This is the second year that mama and papa Blue jay have decided to raise a family in the Cecille Breunner Rose arbor that leads to the backyard.

They get very quiet when you walk through, but if you pause mama or papa or both may swoop down to keep you moving along at a quick pace.

One, two, three, four baby blue jays.


This little guy wasn't long for this world. He jumped early, and kept yelling at me when I approached to help get him back up into his of luck, I have 4 cats. Poor baby blue.

Happy Gardening!

Four cats !!! the poor baby blue must have a bodyguard.

Baby blue refused a body guard, she (he) kept screaming when I came near...the end result wasn't pleasant as she alerted all the cats to her whereabouts as well...sniff, sniff.
