I don't like Stellar's Jays particularly because they are raucous, but there has been one hanging about, hanging about (me: Go AWAY. - it: SWWWWWWK) and just now it leapt onto the railing with a great fat spider in its beak, and swallowed it with relish. If that's what it's about then I'm (belatedly) behind it 100% as this house is very spidery both inside and out. The other day whilst outside cleaning my windows (doors, actually) a ginormous specimen nipped onto the far side of the screen, which made me decide not to leave open that one as it would've then been in the house.
Meanwhile osprey are back, and hummingbirds, which need to eat every .0000613 second, have been finetoothcombing the deck looking for hummingbird feeders or flowers, neither of which they are likely to find.

I like Steller's Jays, but then I do not have to live with them every day in my personal atmosphere. What a bonus to have them find giant house spiders a tasty treat!!!
