Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. My voice shalt thou hear.....In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. Psalm 5: 1-3

So good felt the blue jay
To have a warm Sunday;
Tho' he said not a word
He directed up his prayer.
The Lord heard the bird
Who meditated there...
As he stood in the heat
And waited to eat...
Poetry by me, AJP

The blue jay indeed warmed himself in the sun. (It was still a bit nippy earlier in the morning.)
Since then he has returned several times to eat. I was able to use a slow shutter speed with my camera on a tripod because he did not move from his position for quite awhile.

    The Blue Jay looks like it is very thankful for your sunflower seeds and some warming rays of sunlight on a nippy day : )
