Ursine Visitor

We often have signs, rarely sightings. This guy’s been bold. Esther shooed it (from the house) with great vehemence.

Blue Jays in Force

An interesting thing about the birdfeeder is how birds species time share on it. Blue Jays, when they descend on it, will take over all the surrounding trees. Several dozens of them raiding the feeder for 20 minutes. None of them were there before, none left after. They act as a group, are punctual, and expedient.
