Blue jays do live around here, but they don’t often come into my backyard. Today one turned up in one of the palm trees.

It called as it hopped around the palm fronds, and after a few minutes it flew away.

She hopped onto my left hand, where you can see how tiny she is. She was sitting on the edge of my palm at the base of my little finger.
