a visitor

We had a visitor on our deck recently. He was fascinating to watch, and the three of spent a great deal of time doing just that. We all took turns with the camera, and caught him in numerous poses. He loved the peanuts we left out, and got right feisty when we didn't replenish them fast enough for him!

He would come right up to the sliding door and peck at us through the glass, as though to say "Hey! PEANUTS, please!! NOW!" and wait impatiently while we put a few more out. (We didn't want to put them all out at once, as we have too many squirrels around...

  2. You know, his wings and tail coloration would make a lovely scarf.

  3. They are so bold aren't they? Our dog finds them very "rude" and "says" so, right to their faces through the glass door. They just fly up above him as if to say "get out of the way, you are blocking our view of the peanut people!"

  4. Beautiful colours - both the Blue Jay and the Watermelon yarn. If you want a more - rustic version of Watermelon, Marian at Freshile Fibers hand dyes her own with Suffolk Sheep yarn from Manitoulin Island.

  5. He is going to be some upset when he finds the peanut people are not there during the week.

  6. You see Blue Jays, but you never really get to take the time to really notice the colouring, because they're always busy moving around and up to something! I don't think I've ever really seen just how gorgeous their feathers are. That is one smart bird.

    I agree with Saren, his colours = fabulous scarf colours.
