Western Scrub Jays

(you can click on any of the photos to make them larger)

During this morning's outdoor walk I had fun watching a pair of Western scrub jays in our backyard. The first one was making a big squawking scene in the top of the liquid amber tree. In the photo above he is posing for me in the sunlight.

Here is the other jay in the pine tree just waiting for the first jay to stop making such a big fuss. They both wanted to get to the birdfeeders but my cat was roaming the yard in search of a good place to take a bath in the sun. Here is where she settled on....the roof of our bbq.
She didn't stay there long with the birds swooping around her. The jays are not in the least bit afraid of her...they are rather large aggressive birds and can defend themselves very well. I'm not sure why all of a sudden she thinks that she needs to be up high but we are enjoying her climbing adventures.
