A bluejay was spotted this evening leaving the Yard headed east with a paper card in its beak. After stopping on the Fence, momentarily setting the paper in a tuck of wire and re-applying its hold on the card, the jay headed up into the Northeast Pine.
Another bluejay joined the jay a moment later.
Speculation at the Heartwood is favoring the “birthday card delivery” explanation, followed closely by “making a nest”.
