A few days ago I looked out to see a blue jay frantically flying around and around in the upper branches. Then I noticed a robin on the ground under the tree. The robin was watching the blue jay and also running back and forth.
The blue jay made a mistake. He took his eyes off the robin for a second. The robin quickly moved into a dense bed of old irises. The blue jay just a quickly forgot about the robin and took off.
It seemed as if the blue jay thought, "I sure fixed him." and the robin was breathing a sigh of relief that he had escaped a nuisance.
I was surprised to see this competition as it's well past nesting season. I have no idea what they were squabbling about, but it was interesting while it lasted
