This poor blue jay was blind in this eye but it didn't seem to stop him.

Sharp and clear, Jerry, with the bird popping out of the background. Look at that rich blue!

Nice photo - I wasn't aware Blue Jays had a good side ..... they tend to be obnoxious birds.

They're corvids. So they're intelligent. This makes them curious and gets them into trouble. Some ravens and carrion crowd are as intelligent as a 3 year old I think.

The feathers over the brow give the look of grumpiness. He looks a bit cold, all plumped up!
