Some Jays, A Greenfinch and A Stork’s Nest (Weekly photo challenge – Big)

1    For the last days we have been watching several beautiful jays fleetingly in our garden. They always seemed to have something big in their beaks. Looking them up in the bird book we learned that they love acorns. Today we realised that they are getting their acorns from over the road and while they are still elusive to catch on camera, I just managed to get a couple in the oak tree. You’ll have to look carefully to find them!

Big nest on big columns!
