Charlie Jay

The dogs and I were blessed again by a visit from Charlie, the Blue Jay.

Out of the woods he flew to a sign post not 3 feet away.  I greeted him warmly and tapped my shoulder to see if he'd perch there.  Charlie tried, but I had a hat on and it fumbled his attempt.

I happened to have my camera with me.  The dogs somehow know when they need to be real quiet.  I managed to get a few pics - even though some are not quite focused properly.

I then held out my hand and up he flew and perched right on my forearm.


I sooooooo wanted a picture of this but would have had to drop the dog's flexi leashes.....Not!   




A couple in a golf cart drove slowly up and stopped to see the fun.  At that time, Charlie took up his post perch.  But when I called him to my hand again, up he flew..... much to the delight of the on lookers :)
