I know. Hardly the most aesthetically-pleasing perch and feeder for "our" local jays in the garden, but I don't feed the jays to make the feeder look pretty. I give the jays what they want and give very little thought to what my (bespoke, unique) jay feeder actually looks like.
I've fed no other wild birds in the garden for years now. Just jays. Stunning birds.
Today we had five visit the garden all day (five at one time at lunch) but my record for the garden is eight at one time, a few years ago.
We had a bumper acorn crop locally last autumn, so my jay feeder didn't attract any jays back to the garden for the winter. This season though is very different. No acorns at all locally, meaning I'm going through sacks of "jay food" and they're flocking to my "yard" at present.
All good. I do adore these garrulous, gaudy crows.
