There is no picture here of the two beautiful blue jays that are building a nest in the tree outside the house. They have been working furiously using salal branches, twigs and anything not nailed down. The birds are the most fabulous color blue and set against the green forest it is quite striking.
But they are also quite tricky. Every time I grab the camera they fly away--refusing to pose. As they take flight, they squawk at me as if to say "you are not taking my picture." Mocking birds!
