|Blue Jay sitting on its nest|
I knew this nest was there. About two weeks ago I saw a pair of Blue Jays (Cyanocitta cristata) working diligently on its construction. This nest is located probably only a dozen feet from a busy trail.
Inside the nest, were five perfect light brown eggs with dark brown spots. I snapped a quick picture and then backed away from the nest to allow Mama Blue Jay to come back.
