A special visitor perched in the tree near the front porch yesterday...a young Blue Jay. He, or She, called out numerous times while observing its parent on the feeders below. The parent paid the young one little attention as it hurriedly gathered some seeds. That's okay- this baby got plenty of attention from me, even though it went unrecognized.

Soon I won't be able to distinguish the juvenile Blue Jay from the others. I'll just believe it is somewhere within the crowd that calls out from the trees near the forest edge.
