This is something that just happened in front of me, fortunately, I had the camera. NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me," was on the radio, but the bluejays are louder.

Mr. Peterdactyl - you have a wonderful yard to be able to capture all those birds with your camera. Just lovely.

You are very talented with photography. Thanks so much for sharing your work with us.

I'll have to look into getting that bird seed you speak of. I get mine from Wildbirds Unlimited.

The Pale-headed Rosella is a beautiful bird Joan. Thanks for the picture.

I go cheap with suet and buy it 8-in-a-box at ACE hardware. The birds seem to love it. The box, on sale, is $5 and at its worse is $9-10. It is not fancy, but the birds that live here are just fine with it.

Pale-headed Rosella (Platycercus adscitus)

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 27, 2012 at 1:46am

Mr Peterdactyl, Do you get your suet at the pet store? or from another source

Comment by Peter Cordel on October 27, 2012 at 12:23am

Bushtits apparently like suet.

Steller's jay, Colorado Springs. I almost never see them, but this fall the front range drought has brought them down to my peanuts, dog food, and water. Peter
