PIC OF THE WEEK: 09/26/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.
Notes: I am always a bit surprised at the discord and concern many folks have for Blue Jays, especially since they are one of our most beautiful resident birds. I have heard them called “bullies”. But in my observations, they don’t chase and harass the other songbirds, typically the other birds willingly yield to their presence. Same as they would any other larger bird. Certainly Jays can be loud, but that is typically to alert other birds of the presence of danger. They are nature’s built in security system. That is part of the reason why I am especially fond of them, because time after time, they have pointed out the presence of birds of prey in the area. They even mimic the call of several different hawk species. Following the mobbing calls of a group of Jays, led me straight to this “Red-tail” perched in my neighbors backyard. It was hunting for lizards along the property-line fence. The Blue Jays also helped to keep this nearly two foot tall Buteo distracted. I set up the tripod, adjusted the camera’s settings, focused, and released the shutter in a burst of shots. Having heard enough from the Blue Jays, the hawk finally decided to look for a meal elsewhere and flew off.
