We have more Blue Jays in our area! They are pretty but loud and aggressive. Since we moved to Florida, I've become fascinated with the water birds of the Gulf Coast. IThe nature is one of the most attractive things I love about living here in the Tampa Bay area. Thanks for sharing, Debby!
We've put up boxes for them since moving here and enjoy them every year.
This year, however, we have a new car, with tinted windows that are very reflective. The female spends far too much time every day "fighting" her reflection in the windows. I've put up pinwheel and streamers and still have to clean bird poop off my mountain bluebird-colored car every single day. Hoping she will start inclubating eggs soon and leave the car alone! Still love-em though.
