They are catching up with the feeding after yesterday's windy spell. It's kinda funny watching a young magpie launch himself clumsily from a rooftop, narrowly missing smacking the side of the house with the gusty winds.
It's fascinating watching the bonded pair of Blue Jay reaffirm their bond by feeding each other millet seeds.

|OK, the bird turned to look to his right when the shutter snapped; |
so he looks like a weird, beakless, pointy-headed thing here.
|Guess who is an avid bird watcher?|
|Birdies whets his appetite! There's a very good reason he's not allowed out without |
his jingly bell collar!
