Hey guys. This was me the other day. I was sitting in the window giving the mom the stink eye because she wouldn’t let me outside.
No matter how much I pleaded and begged and whined and pushed on that window…and lemme tell you, I made a lotta noise…she wouldn’t let me out. You get the stink eye, mom!
One of the reasons I wanted out so bad was because of this…
It’s a baby blue jay. Can you see it there? Around here, we see lots of baby birds after they’ve left the nest…mostly robins. But we’ve never seen baby blue jays…until now. This one was hopping around the yard, trying to fly. And the mother and father weren’t far away. That’s why the mom didn’t want to let me out. If you got too close to the baby, the mom and dad would start squawking up a storm and we all know how nasty blue jays can be sometimes. We’ve seen them pecking at squirrels! So the mom didn’t want me out there bothering this baby for fear that I might get pecked. I woulda left the baby alone…but the mom wasn’t taking any chances. Phooey.
I hope that baby learns to fly soon and flies on outta here so I can go out. Because it’s my yard…not some silly blue jay’s.
Do you ever see baby birds where you live?
