Blue Monday

It's Blue Monday.
Visit Smiling Sally 
for additional participants.

This Downy Woodpecker
was chased to the top of this tree.
Not a cloud in the sky!
  During last fall and winter at our home,
I observed that these Gray-breasted Jays
can be quite nasty to other birds.
But, I still find them beautiful
and fun to watch and photograph.
(...and this was who chased the
Downy Woodpecker...)
These photos were taken in Alto, NM 
at my friend Denise's place.

You found just the right bird for your showing today. That is a pretty blue bird. I do not see too many woodpeckers around here..

Really gorgeous shot of that woodpecker! He looks very majestic up there. And I always love to see Jays - I know it's perverse, but I think I like them mainly because they're so nasty!

Happy Blue Monday! from Joy @ Joysweb

What gorgeous blues and all thanks to nature. You did a good job capturing the woodpeckers image.

I love the summer I feed them unsalted whole peanuts just to watch to see how many they will pick up before flying away! They are amazing little birds.
