It’s getting a bit more difficult to photograph bird when the weather temperatures is so hot and humid that anyone can hardly stay for a few minutes outdoors. Besides, birds are having a hard time to hang out by the feeders too long because it may prove to be lethal. They could collapse for reasons of a heat stroke.
I’ve noticed that birds of the Blackbird family and especially from the Corvidae family such as Crows and Blue Jays are more tolerant of the high temperatures and act more calm and comfortable outside. The smaller birds just spend a couple of minutes at the feeders and return to the shaded area of trees or bushes.
For this post I am featuring the handsome bird Blue Jay once again, these birds are familiarizing with my backyard, feeling more confident and returning more often to the feeders and pick their favorite peanuts!
