About This Image

these steller's jays are something else! This one seems like he's telling me to "quit staring", and that he knows he can swallow the acorn, LOL.

Am wondrin' where they hid all those acorns and horse chestnuts that they flew off with, as they still seem to be really hungry each day when they visit the feeders :) Maybe there will be a forest of oak trees etc growing on our property or locally, someday lol

Just noticed that this image is somehow "untitled", - not sure how that happened. Anyway, will add a title to it. Was re reading Steve's comment about acorns and the birds hiding them and forgetting where they hid them. Coincidentally, there's a tiny oak tree just coming up in the back garden, so that must have been from a squirrel or bird hiding it, probably the former, as believe the stellars jays wouldn't have come that close to the house. Will have to move the little oak sapling before it gets too big :)

am late with these thanks also, - glad you like it Janice,Carol, Alex & Steve. Am starting to think you're right about them forgetting where they hid their acorns etc, as they sure seem hungry still, and are raiding the feeders. However, with the depth of the snow, they might not be able to reach their hidden "treasures" anyway, right now.

I have heard they hide the food like Steve said and forget where they put it.I think the chipmunks do this too. Carol

Nice shot Alandra! If your jays are similar to our English ones then they hide the acorns by burying them, so that they can eat them later in the winter when times are hard. Of course, they forget where most of them are, and jays are quite important to oaks as a means of fruit disperal. A brilliant example of mutual advantage in nature! Steve
