Blue Jay art by Roger Tory Peterson

I like these noisy crows! We live quite a few blocks from any of the New York City Parks, but the Blue Jays have got me trained to put out peanuts on the windowsill and they come to our fifth floor canopy and grab some lunch, then boing! they leap off the edge! I get to see them close up if I donít move. Like the Jurassic Park T-Rex, they react to motion, and they are still wild, so I hold very still for a good look.
