    ReplyDelete
  62. Blue Jays are a plenty here
    See them far and near
    Be fun if you could get both he and the Cardinal in one pic
    That sure be a neat trick
    But you might get confused
    Or feel a tad abused
    As the darling and dolls come
    Each beating to their own chirpy drum

    ReplyDelete
  63. Pat ~
    Yes, that would be neat
    to have them both pose and tweet.
    As they both ask for food
    and try to be charming, not rude.
    ha.
    Should I try to put a costume on them?
    A lion's mane
    might be a pain.

    ReplyDelete
  64. wow what absolutely beautiful colors...that blue just pops...

    ReplyDelete
  65. haha good luck with that
    For to get at them you'd have to pretend to be a cat
    And climb a tree

    ReplyDelete
