More pix from yesterday. These were taken on a bush near someone's bird feeder. There were quite a few adorable little chickadees.
But as I was trying to catch focused pictures of chickadees, I realized there was sadness in that same bush. The cold weather had claimed two blue jays.
There were evergreens around the edge of the lawn. You have to wonder why the jays were out in this relatively open space instead of sheltered. Did they get so hungry they risked going to the feeder and then couldn't make it back to the trees? Why two? Were they a couple?
The chickadees paid no attention to the bodies at all. Are they even aware there were dead birds in the bush?
