Bird, wildlife, and landscape photography by Jon Rista
Who’s the peanut snatcher?!?
This fall, a number of jays showed up in my yard. At first there were the beautiful Blue Jays. I tried to get some photos of them, but they seemed to be rather shy, and I was never able to capture any good shots. For a few days, a couple other jays moved in. I saw and heard a couple of Stellar’s Jays. A little after that, a Scrub Jay moved in. The thing about jays? They LOVE peanuts. Not just the seeds themselves, though. If you happen to have any peanuts in their shells, don’t take your eyes off ’em! You might find they’ve been snatched if you do!
