Heads up! National Blue Jay Awareness Month starts TOMORROW!

This December has a blue moon--that means there are going to be two full moons during the calendar month! And back in 1987, Laura Erickson pronounced any month with a blue moon "National Blue Jay Awareness Month"! She'll be focusing on us all month on her radio program, and trying to take photos (but even during NBJAM, we Blue Jays don't like to be too cooperative about photos). She'll also be setting out special treats at her bird feeder, like peanuts, just for us! Now that's the kind of celebration I like! National Blue Jay Awareness Month happens just once in a blue moon, so let's party!

I don't know what I'll be doing on Valentine's Day, but I bet a lot of my friends will be at the Sax-Zim Birding Festival. We love birder-watching. It's fun to grab a mole or vole or any ol' thing and eat it in front of a gawking crowd. February 12-14, 2010.
