This is a special post in honour of my grandfather who I love very much and with whom I have shared so many special moments. About a month ago, I was at my grandparents’ house when I looked out on their balcony and lo and behold I spotted a blue jay. I have been really excited about spotting birds over the Summer (especially with all the robins, cardinals, European starlings, and all other sorts of birds that hang out in my backyard). I had never seen a blue jay in my life. I yelled excitedly and my grandfather came and saw it too. He had never seen one either. We both found it incredibly beautiful, although it was greyer in color rather than bluer (like the female blue jay that is further back in this picture). It was a beautiful bird and for me, it was so special to share that moment with my grandfather. In the time that it took to call my grandfather over, and for him to get there, the bird could have flown away, but it didn’t. Instead, it stuck around so that we both could see it together. In life, there are so many small special moments like these to cherish. And these beautiful blue jays in this picture help spark one of those memories.
