Baby Blue Jay

Earlier today, I was outside when I noticed a baby blue jay hopping around on the ground trying to learn to fly. I followed him around while his parents circled above the two of us.  He later returned to the nest for a well deserved rest and feeding.

  3. Nice observation and great photos of the little Jay Liam! I didn't realize that they would go back to the nest once leaving it! Amazing!

  4. Hi there - I'm also surprised that it got back to its nest under its own steam. Nice set of pictures. Although the bird does look much better once it has grown up a bit!
