Watching nests is a fascinating and quite a learning experience. I’ve watched several different nests over the last couple years but had never found a blue jay nest – which is one I’ve really wanted to find – they hide their nests so well, as is evident in the photo I’ve chosen here. When I came across this nest late May of this year I was over the moon happy and the best part was that I hadn’t really missed that much because I discovered it just a few days after they had hatched. Every day I visited the nest and stayed for hours recording video, and just observing what they do. Luckily for me the pair know me very well and have for the last 3 years so they had no trouble with me being there whatsoever. What I liked the most was that the nest was no where near the neighborhood and was very far into the local woods. This made for a very nice setting. For me, this nest has been one of the most interesting and fun to watch, the way they work together as a team is beautiful. I can’t help but to admire all the hard work they put into it!
