Happy Spring to those in the Northern Hemisphere!
Today is officially the first day of spring here, yet it is a gloomy, rainy day, which will turn into snow for the next few days. Snow is still on the ground, and the deer are still sporting their heavy winter coats, however, yesterday was a nice sunny day and the American Robins arrived with their beautiful songs. A sure sign of spring!
The Western Scrub Jays are gathering food more frantically lately and we hear the constant flapping of their wings as they visit the feeders and beg for peanuts continually through the day – breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. We also see the male feeding the female, which we learned is a way for the female to get used to the male feeding her while she sits on the nest for about three weeks straight, incubating their eggs. Nesting should begin soon!
The photos above were taken yesterday and are of the same male scrub jay. The second image is a combination of two different photos.
