A plague of jaybirds

Afternoon blogsters:

Looked like a few bushels of pecans in those trees out back until the jays showed up.  Every bird in New Mexico is back there whacking hulls and shells.  I'm thinking there won't be many left for the human faction.

I filled the feeder/bath for them in an attempt to lure them away, but now they're just making the rounds back and forth between the pecans and the feeder.

Guess any pecans that get eaten by humans around here are going to have to be store bought.

Yes,
The wildlife know the seasons and whats ready to eat and where it is.
We had a cherry tree in our back yard up north and when I was younger I kept my eye on that tree.
When they got ripe between me and the birds the cheeries did not last long.
I love cheery pie and I got it homemade from the woodstove oven back then.

I'm betting you made sure you got more than those birds. Cherries are hard to get first with the most during that brief interval when the birds haven't gotten them yet, but a fast on his feet youngster can do wonders.

Woodstove pie. Law law law amigo, you and me getting a bit long in the tooth. These nowadays ones don't know what they're missing.

Thanks for the comment. Next year when the cherries get ripe I'll try to do a one upsmanship on the birds and grab you a bucketfull shipped airfreight (supposing I wins this lottery thing between now and then)

Gracias,
Jack
