Hi Tom, hope you and Jane are well and having a great weekend.

I like the Jays. They look a little different than the ones here, but one can tell they are still in the same general family.

I never get tired of seeing photos of birds. I am an old birder from way back. Our Blue Jay is nearly all blue and quite striking. You jay look somwhat like a cedar waxwing, which is a lovely bird with feathers like velvet.
