Uniquely Painted by Nature

025

A first sighting of a Blue Jay’s backside is likely to evoke an astonishment over the bird’s “painted-by-the-numbers” appearance. The hodge-podge pattern almost compels one to pick up a paint-by-the-numbers project and start dipping brushes into paint.

The Blue Jay is unique in its coloring, but he is definitely painted by Nature. Whereas the Green Jay and the Brown Jay (what? brown? ugh!) have little in coloring to compare to their Blue cousin.

What birds do you enjoy?
