Our jays have been very elusive. Not caring
about anything but the acorn crop. This is typical for this time
of year however, they started very early in July pulling off the
smallest of acorns. That is not typical. It will be interesting
to see what this means as far as our winter weather.
The jays have also been covering many acres
each day in search of those acorns, also typical this time of
year. Much of today they spent in the newest restoration area,
where they were first spotted 12 years ago. Many of you have
worked hard cutting back the overgrown citrus and tall oaks. Neal
Rossdeutscher has spent endless hours each week opening
up the white sandy soils , bush hogging and keeping the fence
lines cleared. Everyone has pitched in with eradicating the invasive
exotics. The scrub-jays are loving it!
