Security Threat

She saw red every time

The bully bird, Blue Jay

Sat on the feeding tray

Scared other birds

She wished she had a heart

Not passionate anger

For a bird that yanks her

Into foul mood

  4. Blue Jays are notorious bullies at the feeder. It must be part of their bird breed. LOL! Good capture of emotions and the colors linked to them, Sis. ❤

  7. Blue Jays can be a bit onery. When I lived in Branson, one used to pound on my office window. No matter what I did to try to stop him, he persisted. 😄Well done, Annette

  9. That’s a difficult problem to fix. No wonder there are so many Blue Jays around. They eat all the food! Great observation, Annette. Love it! 😀
