Bossy Backyard Blue Jay in Winter

Bossy Backyard Blue Jay

Members of our community are familiar with my buddy Bossy Backyard Blue Jay, but if you just joined us, I will give you a little background  information.  Bossy Backyard Blue Jay lives in my backyard and he gets his name from, well, let’s just say his name suits him.  He talks a lot and he thinks he is the ruler of the backyard.  Sometimes he dive bombs my dad when I send him out to fill the bird feeders around our house.  I shouldn’t laugh, but sometimes I can’t help myself.  Bossy doesn’t bother my mom, in fact he sits on a branch and chats with her.  My mom and I think it is my dad’s red hair that gets Bossy riled up.  Maybe he thinks my dad is a cardinal or a red headed woodpecker, we just don’t know.

Winter can be super cold and snowy here in Ohio so we try to make sure the birds that share our outdoor habitat have some nice food, suet and a heated water source to keep their water from freezing.  Earlier today, Bossy Backyard Blue Jay was squawking up a storm. I had just settled into my heated thinking circle for some Sunday afternoon meditation when he came knocking on the window.
