Videos, Jays, and Finches

March 12th, 2008

I decided to try capturing some videos with my BirdCam for the first time. I was very surprised by the results! I expected to see a ton of House Finches, and I did.

But, I was surprised to find a new visitor on film! I see them all the time in my backyard, but I have only seen one land on my bird feeder once. He quickly left. It seems they have rediscovered my feeder and are becoming more interested in what’s inside. Be patient — The bird arrives at the end of the video.

Western Scrub-Jay! Here, the Jay takes a little tour of my feeder.

Very fun! I will have to do some more videos in the future.

    Oh, this is fun!! I really enjoyed the videos. We don’t have scrub jays here. Very pretty birds. Are those fruit trees in your yard? It looks like oranges or something like that. I love, love, love the sounds!!!

    Thanks for visiting Sandpiper and Island Rambles! I’ll be sure to post some pictures of my yard soon. And yes, those are fruit trees. We have two large orange trees, a small Lemon tree, and a lime bush in our backyard. I never need to go to the store for citrus! :)
