By Julie on April 20, 2023 Parking Lot Adventures While Grandma was getting her hair done, I was glad to have my camera handy. It was a lucky day! A blue jay was making a LOT of noise, sounding the alarm. A gorgeous red shouldered hawk was hanging around, and I’m sure the blue jay had babies nearby. The hawk checked things out thoroughly but decided to leave the babies alone. The blue jay, however, did not trust the hawk and continued to holler. The hawk left the branch . . . and posed at ground level for a while. It did its best impression of contemplative JFK. It flew up to the utility wire, where it continued to pose until it flew off into the trees. In other bird news, Suzy continues to monitor the black crested titmouse babies. They’re about to fledge, we think.
