Great shots Norm. I found it interesting to see the Pine Marten scavenging at the dropped bird feed when traditionally they are labelled as cold-blooded killing machines!

The feed mix I put together for the Jays has chopped chicken-rice dog food and chopped cheese in it. I hold it up in a little container and watch the Gray Jays, nuthatches and chickadees eat from it, and they all like the dog food. You have to remember, these are all carrion feeders. The Jay order is first the cheese then the do food then nuts and seeds. I've also seen all these birds eating suet from the big slab of pork fat the rangers put in wire metal cage. In my own yard at home where there is no added dog food or cheese, I've pictures of a fox out eating the finch seed, black oil sunflower seed corn mix,

We've had this guy in our backyard eating bird seed off the ground at least four or five times this year. (Taken from the kitchen window.)


My first photographed Boreal Chickadee was pigging out at the pork fat slab, these little guys are not vegetarians. Although I will say, it has to be very cold for them to go for meaty foods. But that's because in the summer they eat a lot of insect protien.


The only things we haven't had near the feeder are wolves.

It's a Grey Jay (Canda's national bird) and part of the University of Guelph Grey Jay study.... this one, taken at aa different location a few days earlier actually has at least a radio tracker, and possibly a gps tracker on it.
