The Jay is a very shy bird that belongs to the crow family.
This specimen was taken a beneficent sunbath in such a concentrated way, I could photograph him in full regalia.
Acorns are the most important component of its diet. These are buried during autumn to provide a stock of food for the harsh winter times.
It is widely believed that Jays play a crucial role in the spread of oak woodlands.
Several thousands (!) of acorns are stored by one single bird in the forest each autumn !
Dutch name : Vlaamse Gaai
German name : Eichelhäher
Latin name : Garrulus glandarius
A big thanks to CsomorLászló for the kindly nomination of this picture.
Jay is a very curious bird. A little jays lives at us between houses. They can steal something at others. She is able to imitate miaow of cats, sometimes it teases them...:-))
Your photo of jay is very beautiful!
shy???? these are the guys that enter my bird feeder the minute i'm gone, to look for the raisins to stash away and hide from the sparrows ; )). they must be pretty smart, too, as they suceed in squeezing their cumbersome bodies in between the roof and bottom of our little wooden house, built especially to keep pigeouns out. the raisins are gone before one can say jack robinson!! great shot of the jay, though! love how the light is even enhancing the pretty blue shine of his feathers. lg, sabine. p.s.: i'll be waiting for the first "raisin trees" to appear in our front yard this summer ; ))!
Smart little creatures, aren't they?:)
And this one here is just lovely. I can understand his taking a sunbath because this is my favourite leisure time activity, too:) Well, perhaps I don't perch on the tree...:)) Cheers, Viola
Great with his suspicious look in his eyes - beautiful colours in his plumeage, such sharp details. Another bird I have never seen, but we have the blue jay in wooded parts of the city.
I really love these kind of shots when the light only falls on the bird, and brings out the beautiful colours and shows the fine detail. Often I find it is difficult to control the exposure when you get strong light like this, but not here, as the exposure has been controlled perfectly A very fine shot.
best wishes from Lawson.
