Blessed are your eyes, for they shall see and your ears....for they hear the parable of the sower.... (whose seeds fell by the wayside and the birds came and devoured them up.) St. Matthew 13: 4- 16-18

This bird got tired of waiting for a squirrel to finish eating on the feeder and decided to eat suet instead of sunflower seeds...It didn't seem to bother the squirrel near by who wasn't about to be rushed...and it was interesting for me to get this different angle of the blue jay for a change of pace.

A gray squirrel who kept eating slower
Purposely didn't drop seeds over the side
(As did the parable of the kindly sower)
For the wild birds to find and devour....
Lunch for rodents may last up to an hour;
But the wise blue jay already knew it....
He opened its eyes and found the suet...
Poetry by me AJP

    Wonderful capture of this Blue Jay!!! The Blue Jay is wise to the squirrel and knew that the squirrel would hog the feeder for a very long time so he turned to the suet feeder. Pretty smart of the Blue Jay : ). Love the framing!
