  1. I am getting more and more variety of birds in my backyard including this bluejay. I should have put feeders back there a long time ago. Still no squirrels !!! cc's welcome.

  3. Excellent Warren,

    I too have been trying to get the blue jays to come over.

    Nice shots. Don't worry the squirrels will find your feeders soon enough.

    Very lovely, Warren. The squirrels will figure it out soon enough.

    They do love peanuts. Try a woodpecker feeder filled with them hung away from where squirrels can get them. Woodpecker blocks in a cage works well, too.
