Our scrub jay is GONE!!!!
We've had a scrub jay who lived in our neighborhood now for the past two years. He just appeared one day 2 springs ago and stayed. Several of us feed the morning doves, so he had a good source of food. We figured he flew down from the nearby pinyon forest in our local mountains. It's only a 5 minute drive to the pinyon forest, where I see many of his relatives. He got to associate me with food and when I would drive up into our driveway every afternoon, he would appear for his afternoon birdseed. He'd also greet me in the morning. He was here after we returned from vacation, but I told hubby I didn't see or hear him all last weekend. And, hubby stayed home yesterday and didn't see or hear him either. Believe me, he's quite LOUD!!! We don't have a clue as to what happened to him. All we know is that our neighborhood is a lot quieter without him. **NOT MY PHOTO*** I could never get a decent one of him...he was always in a tree staring down at me or hopping around the yard! We miss you, little one!
