Baby Jays about to fly the coop

Baby Jays went form small, pink, shivering things with closed eyes, to beautiful fuzzy blue balls, very curious and ready to get going elsewhere. They keep climbing up to the edge of the chandelier and sit there and stretch their wings and flap a little. They are still very hungry and their parents are diligently feeding them.

What is strange is how the parents weren’t concerned with us out on the deck up until now (except for one time when the male sort of attacked J.) — but now they are all vigilant and testing the waters by flying real close if you sit in one of the chairs. No outright attacks, but signs of displeasure.

Any day now!
