OK, I solved
the mystery of the Blue Jays. When I came outside Saturday
morning to check on the tumbler, my eye caught
on the sight of old man Sheldon doing a slow,
rather half-enthusiastic "feed me" begging
posture. Not sure if an ancient Peachfronted
Conure is capable of sarcasm -- although it certainly looked
slow and sarcastic -- or if he just had a dim
memory of his chickhood. Either way, the big
noise and begging displays came from the Blue
Jays hanging out on the fence near the
mulberry tree. It's clear that their parents
have left them to fend on their own, but they
still keep crying, begging, and hoping.
Today, Sunday morning, is a cool and
gorgeous day. The Blue Jays have dispersed.
Cookie, who loves the Blue Jays, looked over
aghast to see a Common Grackle on the seed
feeder. He made a little display, Common
Grackle begone! and it was so. For about
