This photo was taken in cottage country in ontario and sent to me with the comment: “Here are some blue Jays that didn’t follow you to Florida’ My daughter and son in law heard noisy chattering. They looked out the window and to their surprise they saw a flock of Bluejays in the deep snow braving the deep freeze. According to them they looked even bluer from the cold and they looked hungry. They immediately put food out for the birds that was devoured immediately.
I thought Blue Jays flew south for the winter. I used google and learned that sometimes they migrated and sometimes they didn’t. The younger generation tends to fly south more frequently than the older generation. I guess the young like the action in South Beach and the older generations are bothered by the honking horns and bad drivers. I have a feeling this year they wish they would have flown south.
I know that Canadian Geese fly south. Just ask my husband. A couple of years ago he was sitting by the condo pool with other condo residents. Besides the usual honking from the cars, they heard honking from above. They looked up and saw a gaggle of geese flying overhead. The birds must have spotted hubby because he was the recipient of a splotch that landed on his shoulder and another splotch that landed on his towel. Nobody else got splotched on. We figure he was targeted in retaliation for him flapping his arms at these birds in the past trying to chase them off the beach at the cottage.
