I thought Andrea Petersen might enjoy seeing a "southern" blue jay. This shot was taken during a light snowfall this morning. Although our thermometers don't read in the minuses, we still manage to get a little dusting of snow each season. We also have bluejays year-round.

    Our little snowfall was quite the surprise here . The blue jays are going wild here at home. I threw a ton of peanuts out for them. This is a great photo of this jay and a wonderful gift for Andrea!

    Thank you for for this beautiful tribute, Donald ...Your southern blue jay probably doesn't see as much snow your way as the jays that stay here year around, but this one looks more interested in the food and is taking the snow in stride...Excellent shot! .

    That`s a beautiful blue jay shot and a lovely tribute to Andrea! If there`s a feeder in the area you will likely see a happy bluejay nearby :)
