I often talk about Blue Jays and how I like them. There are many people that canâ€™t stand Blue Jays and I can understand that. They are big, loud, and can be rather intimidating. I still think that they are a beautiful bird with a bad rap, and deserve another look. Although I like the Jays, they often show up at my feeder when Iâ€™m trying to photograph my â€śrealâ€ť favorite bird, the Cardinal.
