Bird-charmers: To hold a wild bird, redux, with Northern Blue Jay

Heather Evans of Glens Fork is the latest to experience the thrill of a moment's close visit with a wild bird.

It happened yesterday, Saturday, March 19, 2011, when a beautiful Northern Blue Jay flew into one of her windows.


"My kids and I went outside to see if it was still alive," she recounts."It was, and he/she perched on my hand for several minutes. I had chores to tend to, so I placed him in the tree. I was able to take a few pictures. After putting the camera outside, I came back outside and he flew away to another tree."

The photo accompanies this article, and is a reminder of a similar incident almost four years ago, when Susie Grant of Little Cake shared the thrill she had when for a brief time, she held a Rosie Grosbeak after it had a similar mishap at her home. Click to Susie Grant nows knows what it's like to hold a wild bird for the story and a photo of Susie Grant holding the wild bird.
