On the way through Markam Park in Surise, i ran into a family of Blue Jays bouncing through the trees. The young were flapping their wings and begging from the lower branches. The adults were searching through the trees nooks and crannys for something to keep the kids happy. This one adult made it down close to and looked to be interested in what I was doing. With no food to hand over, the bird moved on to the next copse of trees. One thing that I have noted is most that Jays around the world have the tell tale stripping. on the flight and tales feathers like this Stellars Jay or Eurasian Jay.
