While wiping the kitchen table, I saw something flutter by and down to the ground, walked over to see who stopped by and there were Mr and Mrs Cardinal walking and grabbing things off the ground, suddenly a male Jay showed up, then another male Jay.. I watched them eat for about 10 minutes , opened the door causing them to leave and you can see what they were eating in above photos.

Looks like another bumper crop of fruit for the squirrels and birds in a few months. Sunday morning, I was totally entertained by two jays while making up the bed. One sat on the sill, 3 feet from my nose, the other stood on the rim to the rain barrel. once again they were belly up to the avocado buffet.
