[Tweeters] Port Townsend Blue Jay update

The PT BLJA may have a slightly more reliable pattern, coming to a house at
881 Rose (Rose & H) where peanuts are provided. The Steller's Jays and Blue
Jay were together this morning, all silent, quickly making repeated forays
and caching the peanuts elsewhere. The Blue Jay seemed to be caching to the
west and northwest (toward Cherry St and north of H St.). Assuming this
feeding is a regular morning occurrence, this would be a good place to look
for the jay in the morning. It can be rather quick and stealthy.

(I can't believe I'm recommending birding a peanut feeder since I spent
more than half my career trying to stop anthropogenic food subsidies of
corvids. That said, I live nearby and will not get into the peanut business

The Blue Jay has also been seen as high/east as Fir Street and as far south
as the large undeveloped swale south of F Street (below/west of Willow St),
where it was foraging on acorns.

The fulmar show off Pt Wilson appeared to have abated this morning.

good birding,

Steve Hampton
