A flash of blue streaks across my snow-laden yard and I hear the familiar call of my local blue jay. I’m tucked away inside my photo blind hoping my blue friends will cooperate and land where I can capture a few images of this marvelous bird. Yes, the blue jay is one of my favorite birds. I know that many would not agree with me. They think the blue jay is a robber of other birds’ eggs, chicks and also a general bully. I don’t agree.
