Mom, dad and 4 babies, I think...a rare find at one feeder at the same time! And with such a distressingly high death rate, it's amazing that these proud parents could raise all these youngsters and prepare them to be on their own. A fleeting moment that I unfortunately had to capture through the window of my kitchen because if I had opened the door it would have scared them off. If you've ever heard an excited jay you know how loud they are. The babies fluttered their wings and squawked as they impatiently waited for each mouthful of protein laden peanuts. I could hear it but the video camera did not pick up the audio from inside :(
Enjoy and remember, be kind to wildlife. They work so hard against impossible odds.
