    That was copy/paste, not extemporaneously typed.

    It is fascinating stuff.

    I agree it is most fascinating, that's what I love about nature.
    My daughter and family went to a local preserve today called Sweetbriar. She showed me a video she took of her husband who had his phone out and while looking at it a young blue jay perch on top of it and started squawking at them. For a lack of words I can only say it was adorable. I feel the bird might have been hungry I don't know but it was an unusual encounter.

    I asked my daughter to send me a screenshot of the video.

    In my experience, Bluejays are anything but timid. I watched a Bluejay attack a squirrel that was getting very close to its nest. This was in a tree whose canopy was over the street. That bird divebombed that squirrel until the squirrel fell to the street below, bounced once, and was still. I've been divebombed by Bluejays that had a nest in a small tree right outside my front door. Our Bluejays in my back yard constantly follow me when I'm working in the yard, and they chatter incessantly. This is not during egg laying time, and no fledglings are around. While some of the activity, above, did go along with having young in their nests, I have never thought of Bluejays as timid, nor experienced them as such when I'm aloft.

    Maybe to other birds and wildlife,but here they ahy away from people. Of course, when the family visits it's really noisy and active.
    Even our Koi and Goldfish wouldn't come up for treats when the grandkids were around.We don't have a pond anymore though. Thery came up every morning and evening except when they heard the kids.

    I've been following a man on YouTube that bought a live lobster from the grocery store and has been keeping it as a pet since October, '21. He named it Leon. He has 582K subscribers.
