The Jay Way

A  L  O  H  A !
Western Scrub-Jay
Aphelocoma californica

"As long as there are bluebirds, 
there will be miracles and 
a way to find happiness."
            Shirl Brunnel

"Be like the bluebird 
who never is blue, 
For he knows from 
his upbringing what 
singing can do."
             Cole Porter

"The bird feeder is a 
premium channel."
           Jim Shea

 "Birds are the most 
vivid expression of life."
     Roger Tory Peterson 
epitaph he chose for his tombstone

"Birds have a way 
of putting things 
in perspective. 
They forge ahead and 
carry on no matter 
what happens. 
No dwelling on the past, 
no regrets, sheer 
100% survival..
and beauty."
          Susan Halpin

I love the bluebird quotes! I felt that way when the bluebirds were here in such numbers. Now we are getting the jays, both scrubjay and stellar's jays. I have a post next week about them. Loved your jay photos.
