blue jays were my nemeses. I don't really think I can truthfully say that anymore. I've since gotten some very good pictures of them in the past. And now I have a few more for you. And I even caught one on video! The video is a strange story.
Do you see what the blue jay is perched on? That is a nest, and I remember where it is! I hope I'll be seeing more of this bird in the future, and maybe even some little blue jays when they are big enough to come out. The nest is high up in that tree, but my hopes are equally as high.
And now for the the newest episode of Rat TV! I actually took this video a few days before I took the pictures, but I thin this might be the same bird. I got this from a different part of the trail, but I zoomed in to the general direction of this blue jay and its nest.
I was looking for a woodpecker that I kept hearing, so I zoomed the camera in to a far off part of the forest hoping to get lucky. And then in my view screen I saw a bird in the same general location that the sounds were coming from. I couldn't believe my luck! I thought I had actually found the woodpecker.
But then when I got home I was amazed to see this blue jay in the video. It is very hard to hold the camera steady enough at this distance to follow anything, but I did it for a few valuable seconds. I don't think it's the best video there ever was, but the story of my luck is amazing.
This post was supposed to be up yesterday, but I forgot to write it. Really! I thought I already wrote it, and set it to post, but I discovered that morning I was mistaken. How's that for messed up? Now the mistake is corrected, and the thought of this error is funny. I hope anyone else's error can always be so amusing and in good cheer.
Have a nice day!
