July 6th, 2009 – Blue Jay

Below are some photos of Blue Jays  ( Cyanocitta cristata ).

They are not the best quality photographs (taken at too great of a distance), but I found them amusing.  So I figured, why not throw them in here?  I noticed these two Blue Jays stealing dog food.  So I started watching them.  They didn’t mind my watching, until I started photographing them.  My camera makes a noticeable amount of noise.  And that drew their attention.

As you can see in this first photograph he was still focused on his next flight down to the dog food bowl:

Here is a photo taken a few shots later of one in flight, and the other giving me the stink eye:

If you think a bird cannot give you the stink eye, let me zoom in a little closer:

So after awhile of this (and I do mean awhile).  They decided that they would just sit there on the fence being perterbed at me:

Within moments of me going inside, they went back to stealing dog food.  🙂
