This morning, the baby blue jay came out of his nest in an oak tree in my yard. He either fell or thought he could fly when he could not. He hopped until he found the small bushes and pines and then he hopped up the side of a small pine tree where I snapped lots of pictures. He spread his wings a little each time he hopped. The parent birds called to him, giving him specific instructions, I’m sure. 🙂 Of course, Cougar, my cat, showed up to see what the birds were chattering about. I left the birds alone, and later I found the blue jay’s nest high on the oak limb. One baby bird is in the nest. But it’s probably not the one who had tried his wings. I didn’t see him again, but I feel sure he is safe among the oak leaves with his parents nearby.
