This year we have the same pair of Blue Jays (not the baseball players) every morning and evening. Didn't know this little nugget, so looked it up and sure enough:
"Blue Jays typically form monogamous (external - login to view) pair bonds for life. Both sexes build the nest and rear the young, though only the female broods them. The male feeds the female while she is brooding the eggs. "
Something like Canada Geese or swans......Pretty neat thinks I.
Apparently divorce is unheard of in bird world. But, they will take another mate should one die.
It goes on and on, as to range, different subspecies, etc.
OK, so it's wide open, like "nuggs fer the birds", and so on, but: Does anyone else feed the birds?
What kinds of birds do you get at the feeder?
What do you feed em?
What kind of feeder do you use?
This could be a very interesting thread, as I know we have members all across Canada and in the US, and the birds might vary as to type.
Fellow CC'ers . Show us yer birds........well tell us.
