Now’s the time of yr bald blue jays might begin displaying up at your feeder

Although that bald-headed blue chook at your feeder this time of yr might look a bit odd, consultants say it’s nothing out of the abnormal.

The chook is a standard Northern blue jay. For many of the yr this Maine songbird will be simply acknowledged by its intense blue physique with white and black higher physique, grey underbody, black ring across the neck and the perky crest on its head.

However come fall, that crest vanishes leaving the jay wanting a bit worse for put on.
