Weekend Snapshot #3

“Hear! hear!” screamed the jay from a neighboring tree, where I had heard a tittering for some time, “winter has a concentrated and nutty kernel, if you know where to look for it.” – Henry David Thoreau, 28 November 1858 journal entry

We spent Sunday at my parents’, putting up their outside Christmas decorations and lights. I took a photo of this handsome fellow as a gust of north wind ruffled his feathers.

  1. He looks like the boss! What a wonderful photo and quote. You made my morning. As a lover of winter, it’s a perfect combination for heading into December.

  2. Oh my gosh, someone else on the planet actually likes winter?! (My younger daughter does, too.) Yes, the jays are certainly bossy, pushing the little birds aside until they’ve had their fill. :) Thanks for your visit.
