The Early Bird Catches The Peanuts


I put a few peanuts in the feeder for Kiki, the mama squirrel.
Before she could even discover them, this Blue Jay swooped in
and took them away, one by one.
He sure was excited, too! haha.

    1. Was very greedy
      and a little needy
      Didn't want to share
      or even leave a spare.

  7. Oh I love Mama Squirrel's name. It is our family name for my sister, Kristi. Mr Blue Jay may have a belly ache after eating that big peanut.
