Other Farm Critters
Grace came running up to me the other day to show me her new critter. A baby blue jay. Apparantly the kids had been playing in the yard and saw this little fellow on the wood pile. They walked right up and Grace picked it up in her hands. We often times watch Blue Jays out our back window so we assume they have a nest in the tree and this little fellow must have fallen out. He wasn't scared a bit. Grace set up a refuge in Lady's dog kennel and took care of him for the afternoon. When we spotted the momma bird flying around looking for her baby she set him back out under the lilac bush so she could come and take care of him. We haven't seen any evidence of him so somehow the momma must have brought him home. Besides baby birds around here there's also lots of other critters that the boys like to catch. Like frogs. And bees. Buzz! Buzz!
