Backyard Wildlife… Scrub Jay

I’ve finally figured out who is living in the nest high up in our oak tree.  I can hear the babies chirping, but I haven’t been able to spot the parent bird feeding them.  But I’ve finally had success!  It’s a scrub jay family.  I should have known.. the birds are so territorial, but I thought that was just their bullying nature.  The baby was out of the nest a couple days ago, so, while the baby was out on a branch, I was able to see a baby being fed.  Unfortunately, because they were so well tucked behind the leaves, I wasn’t able to get a picture.  But here’s mom or dad, eating at our bird feeder… my son LOVES watching the birds eat out of the feeder he made (with a lot of help!)…

Interested in bringing wildlife into your backyard?  Here’s the project we’re working on…
