Here is the bird I really bought the bird-feeder for. This was taken from my bathroom window yesterday, but today I saw two of them hopping around with four squirrels. I don’t think they’ve been able to use the bird-feeder yet, but we’re making a plan.
In the meanwhile, here’s my Birthday Boy in blue.
It’s a beautiful day here in Florida and we’re off to meet friends for brunch at the Old Key Lime House restaurant on the Intracoastal. Have a wonderful Sunday.
A belated Happy Birthday to Mr C Sylvia! I hope you had a smashing lunch!
Thanks so much, Adrian. Yes we did indeed. 🙂
What a lovely man your hubby is Sylvia, love his smile – wishing him a very Happy (belated) Birthday! 🙂 Blue suits him! And your bird is a beauty…hope your plan worked for the feeder 🙂 xx
Thanks so much, Sherri. Yes, he really does look good in blue. The bird feeder is now back inside waiting for another plan. The squirrels are very tenacious and managed to break the hook, knock it onto the ground and shake all the seed out. 😕
Thanks, Marylou. 🙂
great pics and hope your hubby had a great day!
Thanks, Cybele. He certainly did. 🙂
ha ha ancora dal tuo osservatorio speciale del bagno! hai una grande fortuna a possederne uno così interessante
Haha The tickets are free and always some good entertainment. 🙂 xx
Happy B-Day to your hubby. My mom has a dedicated Sammy/ Jay feeder, we use plain peanuts that we get in bulk from a feed store. 🙂
Thanks, Ed. That sounds perfect. 🙂
Loved the photo of the blue jay, Sylvia, and your blue boy looks pretty happy too.
Thanks, Jet. He was very happy. 🙂
Happy belated birthday to your husband, Sylvia! I always enjoy seeing a bird, even a blue jay! Hope you both have a wonderful time up in New Jersey! Enjoy your time away from blogging, too. ❤
Thank you. We’re really going to love seeing everyone. 🙂
Great shot of the Blue Jay, Sylvia (from the bathroom window? the things we go through for a good shot!) 😉 Hubby looks great in blue, I hope he had a wonderful day 😀
Thanks, Dianne. I’ve started to keep my camera in the bathroom. 😀
Great idea! 😀
Wishing a wonderful Birthday and enjoy the Blues…. and the food! 🙂
Thanks, Ute. It was a lovely day. 🙂
happy birthday to Hubby, Sylvia! 🙂 what a lovely blue bird! 🙂
Thanks so much, Lola. 🙂
lovely bird, do you know what the name is? We have blue jays here but this doesn’t look like them…Happy Birthday to your husband, hope he enjoyed his special day!!!
I’m pretty sure it’s a Blue Jay. There is also a Stellar’s Jay which is closely related. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steller's_jay Thanks for the birthday wishes. 🙂
very interesting Sylvia…the blue jays I’ve seen around here have more blue, of course there are different looks/types for different areas of the world. To be honest I’ve not seen one where I live now, but when I lived lakeside I saw them often out my kitchen window. Sadly I don’t have a photo to show you…if I’m ever fortunate enough to take one I’ll post it for you.
Fun association, blue and blue. Happy Birthday to your man in blue. 🙂
Thanks so much, Otto. 🙂
Handsome fellas 😉
Thanks, Dawn. 🙂
Happy birthday to the boy
Thanks, Derrick. 🙂
the birdie is a beauty… and those grey squirrels are a pain in hte neck! if you hang the feeder out will that stop them getting in?
happy birthday to the boy in blue!
Yes he is gorgeous. I’m beginning to also think the squirrels are not quite as cute as they look. Yesterday, we bought a 3′ thin metal rod and screwed it into the tree trunk. The squirrels just take a flying leap and cling on for dear life whilst they gobble. 😀
they are cute but they are also mental. I’ve seen one eating out a kfc packet once. I hope it was the batter… and they scare away other wildlife as they are so aggressive.
Wie schön ich wünsche einen schönen Pfingstmontag und eine gute Woche eine Umarmung Gislinde
Thanks so much, Gislinde. Wishing you a very happy week. 🙂 xx
Hope you all had a great day, Both look pleased with themselves.
Thanks so much. Yes it was a delightful day. 🙂
Happy Birthday to Hubby …. and glad he took time off from the renovation.
Thanks so much, Frank. He deserved a day of rest and relaxation. 🙂
What did Sammy have to say about Mr. Blue Jay??? 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful day with your husband. Happy birthday to him! 🎉🎉🎉
Sammy was too busy eating to bother about Mr. Blue Jay. 😕 Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. It was a lovely day. 🙂
Sammy has priorities. He better watch out if Mr. Blue Jay finds that feeder. Blue jays can be quite bossy. 🙂
I’m so glad you had a lovely day! Your husband’s birthday is also my wedding anniversary. A day of good karma. 🙂
Oh, happy anniversary to you and hubby. 🙂 The Blue Jays were looking slightly miffed, but it was two birds against four squirrels, so no contest. 😀
Thank you very much. 🙂
The blue jays here in Missouri will run everybody off. Go Sammy go! Ha!
Happy Birthday in blue!
Thanks so much, Lisa. 🙂
Thaks, Dries. It was a lovely day. 🙂
Love both of those blues!!
Thanks, Kate. Me too. 🙂
All my best to your handsome birthday boy…I hope he enjoyed the day. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day here in Vero Beach as well.
Thanks, Karen. He sure did. 🙂
Thanks for sharing this photo of a lovely bird non native to the UK. Happy Birthday to your hubby too.
Thanks so much for the birthday wishes, Helena. Glad you enjoyed seeing the Blue Jay. 🙂
Oh gosh wow! Gorgeous bird!!! I don’t think I have seen that kind before? Happy birthday to the young man too! Happy Sunday.
Thanks so much, Laura. So great to see you here. 🙂

Happy Birthday to your husband, Sylvia. Blue Jays can be noisy, but they’re so beautiful, aren’t they? Enjoy your brunch.
Thanks, Carol. I hope the Blue Jays give the squirrels a telling off. 😅

A blue jay? Beautiful. And your old fella’s not too bad either (but don’t tell him I said so…) 😀

I hope you’ve had a fun day 🙂

Happy Birthday to your guy!
Love the name “Old Key Lime House.”

Just beautiful! Both of them.
Hope it’s a brilliant day and have fun
