Gaio, Eurasian jay - (Garrulus glandarius)

Hello TN Friends

Yesterday,after long time without using a shelter to photograph I went to a friend farmer field to spent some time waiting for birds. Shelter placed,two perches near the water and patient relax... one hour there may I say I heard this jays surrounding... a very cautious bird always attentive.After two visits nearby they finally decided drinking and bathing... two of them in the shadows and this one suddenly came to the perch.

Info about this species:


Good days and thanks for viewing...

Hello Jose,
What a fine sharp detailed photo of this Eurasian Jay. It is perched in beautiful light and contrasts very nicely against the dark greenish background. Pleasing eye contact.

Hi Jose. I wish this bird was in my area. He's a beaut. You managed a perfect shot. I've never tried using a shelter/blind. It looks like it pays off if you're near water. Wonderful bird. I'm glad you took the time to do it. TFS Trevor
