Saturday was a cold and snowy day. Only one inch of snow was forecasted, but it kept snowing most of the day and in the end we got at least 3 inches. The poor birds sheltered among our magnolia branches, but only because they know I usually stock our feeder with sunflower seeds to the brim.

After it stopped snowing, asΒ a special treat, I put out a tray of roasted peanuts to provide them with some energy food. Within a few minutes, Blue Jays appeared and swooped down to literally gorge themselves.

Blue Jay: "Maybe I can stuff all of these in my mouth!?"

Blue Jay: “Hmm, maybe I can stuff all of these in my mouth!?”

Blue Jay: "If you must insist, I will try..."

Blue Jay: “If you must insist, I will try…”

Blue Jay, after at least four peanuts down its throat.
