[Tweeters] wandering scrub-jay in Maple Leaf

Hello, tweets.

Yesterday (10/1) a California Scrub-Jay spent about an hour in our yard, fed from a seed feeder and took away a few peanuts that we threw to it, presumably to eat rather than cache. It must have been used to that, as it didn’t flinch when we opened the window and tossed out the peanuts. The only thing that flinched was the Steller’s Jay that hangs around constantly, and the two had a little tiff. But the scrub-jay got the peanut and came back later and got another one, so it wasn’t totally intimidated. It hasn’t been back, and I presume it is an immature in dispersal mode for the fall, perhaps seeking other scrub-jays. Anyway, it was a long-expected but no less exciting new bird for the yard.
