Here the large flock of blue jays flies by the merlin nest. A couple tried to land in the tree and were quickly chased off by the female. These 3 birds were not to sure what happened. You can't see the female as she is on the other side by the nest. The blue jays wasted no time at all in leaving.
As l had my 500 lens on l couldn't get the whole picture. But these are just a few of the large numbers flying over the point. Good estimate would of been upwards to around 500 birds.
They would flitter above getting bugs and all of a sudden the woshing sound was incredible. All you could see were hundreds of blue jays diving into the trees.
