As a birder I should like all birds but if I’m being candid, I don’t. For most likely because of its irritating maddening squawking and squealing and it’s king of the hill demeanor, the blue jay falls into the category of birds to hate. The wife thinks the jay is pretty. I can’t deny it has a nice blue color but that doesn’t overcome it’s irritating nature.
Yesterday as I was driving to work just before light broke, a bird flew across the windshield and met its end. That ‘s the first time a bird’s ever collided with a car I drove. I couldn’t tell what it was but my guess was that it was a swallow.
