    1. I’ve seen a lot more bird varieties up here this year, too, and I’m not sure why. Could also be that their numbers are up because of the pandemic (not so much human interference – I’ve read that bird and animal numbers have generally increased in many places).

      1. I know what you mean. We have a bird feeder right outside the window where I write and they just keep coming. They are so lovely. I like the way you caught him in between the sticks in the tree with that color coming through. Have a great weekend. Love ❤️ Joni

  1. My favourite corvid. They are all over our yard and neighbourhood. Can’t wait for the chicks to fledge and flitter around. Have a great weekend Lynette. Allan

    1. There seems to be a lot more of them – I’m thinking because we humans haven’t been interfering as much. Apparently animal and bird numbers are up in many places. Shows how quickly nature can come back!

    1. They’re so pretty! They like the mountains and forested areas – are there forests in your part of Utah? Blue jays don’t usually migrate very far south, either. You’re welcome. 🙂

      1. Yes, we have forests, but I suspect they aren’t the same as your version of the forest where you live. There’s not enough moisture here to support a really dense forest for one thing. I’ve never seen a blue jay nor a cardinal come to that. Maybe it’s the predatory birds that are really abundant – we get all kinds of hawks, eagles, falcons, and other birds that eat smaller birds.

        1. I used to live in Arizona and drove through Utah a number of times. You have extraordinary landscapes, many of which I stopped to see. I know you have mountains and forests (I remember Dixie and Fish Lake National Forests) but I realise that many parts are sparsely forested or comprised of pine forests, which yes, are very different. A beautiful state.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
