Florida Scrub-Jay

April 13, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

My first ever photo of a Florid Scrub - Jay. The photo was taken in the Ocala National Forest, near Astor, Florida.

Several of the birds were wearing bands on their legs. One had blue bands and the other had Red, on the left leg

and silver and white bands on the right leg.

There was a nest nearby with 4 eggs.

This Black Bear showed up in my backyard. He proceeded to tear down all of my bird feeders.

And then sat down to survey all his damage.

He was quite pleased with himself.
