Hizonner



I had three blue jays gathering around my feeder today. They were too fast for me, though. Only got this one. Later I saw them flying around in the company of a cardinal. Talk about a colorful, but nasty, crew!

We've had a lot of Bluejays around here for a while. I think they must migrate farther north for the summer as we only have them in the spring and fall.

The nuthatch and chickadee run a production line on the sunflower seeds though, going through about a half pound a day.

I'm jealous. three years ago we had two blue jay for several month. Blue Jays are not native to Washington State. We do have Stellar Jay.

The two BJ's were hanging around with a flock of Stellars. This was b4 I got my digital camera...so not pix.

I heard that some kind of food shortage send them west.

We don't have cardinals, either.

I haven't seen blue jays around here in a long time. I used to put seeds out for the cardinals and the blue jays flocked in. They sure are fighters though. I love watching the colorful birds though. We have a lot of cardinals.

Hi there,
I finally got my information straight about where my German ancestors lived. I can trace them all the way back to 1391. The ones who came to America were from Gimbsheim, Prussia and Darmstadt, Prussia. It also mentions Hessen and Worms. This was Johann Philip Kimmel. His father Johann Michael Kimmel was born in Alsheim, Prussia and his father was born in Oppenheim, Prussia. The Kimmel who came to America lived in Pennsylvania. (Berlin, PA) My line then moves eventually to Elkville, Illinois.
