Jay’s of all types are cheekey, aggressive, colorful and territorial. They have no problem pecking birds of prey three times their size. Hogging the bird feeder is an art they have perfected. Oh and lets not forget their vocabulary it’s as large as it is loud. I have several that hang out in the yard and they always brighten my day. This painting is one in a series of 5 x 7 cards I am working on of some of my favorite backyard inhabitants.
