When the first snow fell and covered the yard in a beautiful blanket of white fluff, this Blue Jays came to the feeder adorned with natural ice jewelry. Blue Jays are year-round regulars in my yard, but I never get tired of studying all the details on their pretty heads. This downward look is my favorite pose by them.
