Another gift from Angelica. It just takes my breath away to realize the great diversity that comes about by natural selection. No need for the god hypothesis.   Continue

European Jays are Midwives of the Forest Trees.

I thought squirrels were responsible.  In fact, that's the one forgiveness I have for squirrels.  

Every autumn the average jay plants 5,000 acorns to retrieve as food in the winter.

One blue jay was recorded to plant 100,000 beech nuts in one month.

And only retrieves 1/4 of the planted seeds.   So apparently the Jays plant a lot of tree seeds.  So I don't mind the Jays in my bird feeder.  It's a "thank you."

I don't know if the local jays plant tree seeds.

Most of the Jays here are Stellers Jays.  Blue with black head and black crest.  I also see Western Scrub Jays.   Both love black oil sunflower seeds and suet cakes.  I've also made suet cakes using 1/2 peanut butter and 1/2 crisco mixed with bird seed mix. They like that, too.

Yes, Dallas the Internet is addicting - I admit.

It is time consuming.

Thank all of you! Sure do appreciate it.
