Spring has arrived and oodles of birds are competing for a spot at the bird feeder. This guy won a spot every time he tried. Taken through my bathroom window.

Great shot of this bad boy. I've been trying to get a good shot of the couple who live in the backyard area but they're too wise. I leave peanuts for squirrels and guess who steals them? I couldn't believe my eyes. But as soon as they see me around, they're gone.

He won a spot because he's a mean Blue Jay. They're pretty, but definitely the thug of the bird world.

Nice shot.

This is a lovely capture, I particularly like the shades of blue in his (her?!) tail. Well done on a creative 'cool' entry.

the "bait" for the bird kind of hurts this picture.

The bird and bird seed really bring out the blue hue on that tire. Real nice detail and textures all through out your photo.

"Blue" jay! Seems tilted. Could use some extra exposure.

Cool image, but black object is a little bit distraction!
