That shot is just unbelievable. You must be the "bird whisperer" because I just can't imagine a bird perched on your hand like that. So glad you were able to get that shot.
Photo taken by my son, Alex, with my phone. It's been quite a surprise, and delight, but I cannot claim to have any special influence... I think it's the special bird. Later this same day, he visited William, Alex, Maria, and James... and he took a lot of peanuts! I'm sure we haven't seen the last of him!
Oh what an incredible shot, and a beautiful bird - what sort of bird is it (we don't have those in England!)
Hello, Carie.This fellow is a Coastal Scrub Jay... a corvid family bird, like ravens and crows.Do you have something similar?
A moment of you! I love it because "mom" hardly ever shows up in the pics. That is also really neat. The bird must sense your goodness. Have a great weekend!
That's true, Kim! I don't often make the cut...The bird is sensing a lot of goodness, and has made friends with all of us... he's bringing in his friends, too. Peanut in hand... friends for life!Happy weekend to you, too.
Scrub Jay or Mexican Jay? What an awesome shot! Well done Alex!Love fom Bandon.
Coastal Scrub Jay, with a rich Mexican heritage, I'd say.Also, loves peanuts, and handouts.
Thank you for visiting.
