skin deep ...

That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, 
but that which is good is always beautiful. 
- Ninon de L'Enclos

Not sure about the Blue Jays in your neighborhood 
but the ones around here can go all 'mean girls' on the other birds.
They get bullish and arrogant and often squawk down the little chickadees.
The Cardinals will have nothing to do with them when they get like that.
The crows, however, feel right at home with it.


  1. The Blue Jays are the same here and go after the smaller birds. Your quote at the top fits this photograph well...beautiful bird with a mean disposition! Have a good weekend!

  2. We have scrubs and they're pretty mellow unless there's another clan nearby and they show up to eat at the same time. Great shot Nicki

  3. What a pretty image!! I hear this all the time and honestly my blues are bullies BUT they do squeal when the peanut feeder is empty!!

    Have a happy Sunday!!

  4. omgosh....they are NOT bullies. I left out the most important word!,

  5. Such a little beauty, Hard to believe its a bully.
