The Curious Scrub Jay
My latest bird was inspired by Julie who wrote:
My grandfather used to feed the scrub jays peanuts. They would fly in and land all over him-from his head to arms to be fed peanuts in the shells. If he was late feeding them they would peck at his screen and doors. They became so used to people that they would land on anyone that visited. I experienced it myself. I held out a peanut in a shell and a scrub jay landed so gently on my arm and took the peanut out of my hand! I have such wonderful memories of visiting with my grandparents and the feeding of the scrub jays.
