In yesterday's entry
here on Blogger, I mentioned that Blue Jays
can be quite the bird watchers, given the opportunity.
I'm following up on that post with information that I recently learned
re this bird type and that is jays "of ages have a 'bald stage' in which all capital-tract feathers, those on the head, are dropped nearly simultaneously, resulting in individuals being nearly bald for about a week."
A jay experiencing this visited my garden
the other week and he/she can be seen in the photograph atop this entry (as well as in the ones directly below) where he/she is alighting on one of my bird feeders
As you may know, dear reader, the Blue jay bird type, has a story within volume three of my hardcover book series, Words In Our Beak.
