I didn't know Blue Jays could do that.



It's been a rough week.
I've been sick.
And we lost power for 24 hours...

so this will be short.

These are the trees outside the office where I work.



And this little critter calls that tree his home.



Hey, pretty bird!



Whatcha doing?





And then I watched in amazement as the bird swallowed the acorn...WHOLE.






Camera Critters is SO much fun! join us!

Lucky you didn't have to rush out and slap it on it's back or something !!

Cool shots, Rhea :-)

Hope you're feeling better! The blue jay photos are great! I thought about you when the storms rolled through. Keep safe, I hear there's more weather on the way.

Birds are cool! Who knew they could swallow an acorn. I'm sorry for all the crap you're going through. I know it's hard. My divorce was so hard!

Mariah said...

I'm sorry, maybe that was wrong of me to say. Probably didn't help anything and I don't even know the whole story. I'm here if you want to talk

Well why is there no picture of the acorn going down? I wanted to see! I do not like blue jays. They're mean.
