I've been assured by a leading authority (me) that the design, colour and of course the name of the famous J-cloth was inspired by the plumage on this bird.

Reason for the Jcloth comparison........................too much sun LOL
Enjoy the world around you and keep taking photographsSee all my photos here Cheers Judi
Thanks, they are stunning looking birds. This was on a feeder at my local reserve and taken from the hide. I feel that I somehow cheated but getting shots of them in the open is very difficult.
We have not seen one yet this year either in the garden or in the local fields although I thought I heard one the other day in the fields.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
Nice photos TeeJay , as for the J cloth story . . . . . well , like this chap said to me "I can't swallow that"

I never cease to be amazed at how much I didn't know I didn't know.
Nice one, Galatas. LOL I can't top that.
Sounds a plausible theory to me. Lovely shots, gorgeous birds :)

Are you saying Jays are scrubbers lol
a good laugh is better than a tonic
WOW! What great shots, mine are always hidden by darned branches but I was lucky at Minsmere once
Barnsley ladAre you saying Jays are scrubbers lol
LOL Ray. They do clean up a lot though.
Very nice photo, John. I did catch one out in the open recently but it required a lot of work to get any half decent sort of image from a very underexposed photo. Even then it wasn't that good.
You weren't standing next to me last week were you TJ??:-)
LOL John. I think they must adopt that position in order to make a quick getaway. All you usually see is a white flash of their rumps as they disappear.
