If you would have told me two months ago when this started that Blue Jay would be my 91st bird of the year, I would have called you crazy... until it took until April 23rd for me to finally grab one. Other highlights on today's rainy, cold walk included quite a few Hermit Thrushes, numerous White-throated Sparrows, Brown Thrasher (92), and a Red-breasted Nuthatch.

I haven't found a Blue Jay yet either! I blame West Nile.

Ohh definitely! I definitely have 'felt' like I've been seeing fewer Jays over the last few years, but actually knowing that I have not seen a Blue Jay in months was an eye-opener.
