    The Rocky Mountains act as a natural barrier to Blue Jay migration. There has been, since 1972, evidence of penetration by some breeding population into the western slopes of the continental divide, especially in the northern limit of their range.

    I especially love that first shot. The expression on the Blue Jays face is hilarious. Karrma is right it would make great a picture for the caption competition. :stew2:

    That first picture is a prize winner,..the expression and inclined head gives the impression its frowning,..and has a questioning look.

    I think he is saying to the pumpkin. They did what to you? I better grab my peanut and get out of here. I agree, it would have been a great one for the caption competition. ;)

    Sherry, What a great photo! Are the pumpkins sitting on your bird feeder?
    My Blue Jays are such glutens at the feeder! They will monopolize the feeder when we put out the goodies. They are so noisy too. Very entertaining birds, they are.

    Kay...yes, the pumpkins were right on the tray feeder. I had a real pumpkin on there too for a while. I would love to put 100 peanuts out some morning just to see how many the Blue Jays would eat..and how long it would take them to finish all of them...
