Was watching the bluebirds, the male had just arrived with a bug.
...and then, the sky seemed to darken, and the male bluebird in a nearby tree began making a horrible noise, and suddenly this scrub jay pounced on the nest hole!!!!
With the bluebird in a nearby tree was also another bird putting up a racket and jumping up and down during the scrub jay attack, I thought it must be the female bluebird but discovered afterwards, it was a finch that had just happened to be in that tree eating blossoms.
Male bluebird in same tree as the finch, after the jay had pounced, still in shock!
In the early evening, a nuthatch family shows up at he feeders, they have three new fledglings with them!
Adult nuthatch takes advantage of suet feeders to keep all his new family members fed!
(This is an upside down hanging suet feeder, to keep the jays and crows out, but which small birds like the nuthatches can easily navigate)
