BLOG: scrubby bastard

I think this is a scrub jay. They have got to be one of the most annoying birds… ever! These guys have the worst cackle and they ate all our hazelnuts this year.

The cats in the neighborhood don’t do much for “prevention” either. I’ve seen one of these birds actually scold our neighbor’s cat. Seriously. The cat was just staring at the bird, not two feet away, and the bird was making this huge racket bouncing up and down. What did the cat do? It walked away and then sulked on our steps. It was totally messed up.
