I was looking out my window today and saw a wonderful sight. Mama and Papa Bluejay were getting their little ones (not so little anymore) ready to "leave the nest". The youngsters looked like they were testing and exercising their wings. I think the parents were trying to encourage their brood to take to the skies! I watched for a long time, then went to fix lunch. When I returned, they were all gone. Whew! Another brood raised!
