I finally got into the local wild bird store yesterday and got a mini education about some of our feathered friends.

Some of the food and feeders that I can make or fashion are on my crafty to-do list. But my biggest lesson learned (read: instant gratification) was that blue jays love peanuts and you can train them to show up at the same time everyday for your viewing pleasure. Cool right?



Yah, I was pretty tickled too.

😍 happy happy day!! 

Super fun for the kids- have them place shelled or full raw unsalted peanuts about 12 feet from a good window seat and wait for the blue jays to show up.

You may get a bonus visit from chickadees, woodpeckers or nuthatches!
