Adolescent Blue Jay  Cooper Marsh

Adolescent Blue Jay  Cooper Marsh

Adolescent Blue Jay  Cooper Marsh

Diet: The bulk of the jay’s diet consists of fruits, nuts, grains and insects, but it is also known to feed on the eggs and young of other bids.

Adolescent Blue Jay  Cooper Marsh

Interesting Fact: Blue Jay’s feathers are not actually blue. The bright cobalt colour is the result of the unique inner structure of the feathers, which distort the reflection of light off the bird, making it look blue.

Credits

 

The Blue Jay is a white-faced bird with a distinctive blue crest, back, wings and tail. A collar of black is often found around the throat and head, and bills, legs, feet and eyes are also black. The Blue Jay has a very heavy bill which is used to peck open a variety of nuts, acorns and cocoons.

Credits Pearly-Eye  Butterfly

The Northern Pearly Eye Butterfly, is one of the few truly shade-loving butterflies in Canada. It is found only in rich deciduous or mixed wooded areas, usually where the undergrowth is thick. Unlike most other species, which prefer trails, clearings, and woods edges, it is usually found in dense areas, seemingly unaffected by the shade. It often lands, and roosts, on tree trunks, one to three metres from the ground and feeds on sap, dung, and mud, almost never on flowers.

Mourning Doves fly fast on powerful wing beats, sometimes making sudden ascents, descents, and dodges, their pointed tails stretching behind them.

Mourning doves show a preference for the seeds of certain species of plant over others. Foods taken in preference to others include pine nuts, sweetgum seeds, and the seeds of pokeberry, amaranth, canary grass, corn, sesame, and wheat. When their favorite foods are absent, mourning doves will eat the seeds of other plants, including buckwheat, rye, goose grasses and smartweed.

Most mourning doves migrate along flyways over land. Fall migration south runs from September to November, with immature birds moving first, followed by adult females and then by adult males. Migration is usually during the day, in flocks, and at low altitudes. However, not all individuals migrate. Even in Canada some mourning doves remain through winter, sustained by the presence of bird feeders.
