Jay Explosion; Death of a Fig

The day before yesterday I stripped the garage door to
a constant cacophony of jays. And this morning I learned
why. Junior jays were all beginning to leave the nest.
The other day I had two pair of Jay parents in my yard:
one Scrub couple and one Steller's couple. This morning
I had two families of four. Yay! I tried to take pictures,
but it's gray and rainy today (yay!) and jays don't exactly
pause to pose.

In sad news, Starlings gutted my lone fig. Bummer.
