Pheathers – The Bird Whisperer or Small Miracles


A “teenager” Blue Jay, wild and reckless, made friends with the ones his Mama told him were the wrong crowd. What an amazing experience this was for all of us.


We gave him some bird seed. He gobbled up a bit, but seemed to like the attention he was receiving more than the food.


He first captured our attention by bathing in a muddy puddle the grandboys had created with the hose. The two year old baby was excited and bold, he went right up to him and petted him on the back. We were amazed. No worries for those of you who might wonder if the bird was sick…no…just very young…feisty, strong, and bright-eyed. We wondered if perhaps someone had hand-raised him…he was that tame.


As I took photographs he pecked the camera.


He also took a liking to my wedding ring.


After a bit he flew to a perch in one of the pines bordering our back yard. Fly away home little bird…stay safe. Small miracles happen every day. Thank you God!

    If I had to guess, I’d agree that this little chap was hand-raised. A mourning dove I raised when I was a kid made herself known around the neighborhood by landing on shoulders. How wonderful that he sought you out. Godspeed little blue jay!
