Ayla And The Blue Jay - Part 1

AYLA: I catched a Blue Jay! The Big Thing was amazed. He says those things are fierce, not like doves and sparows and finches... So I was very proud. He ran in an got the camera. I dint mind cause it was a special catch and outside, there is no flashies from the camera...

Ya gotta bite big birds good and often. Cause they are strong and fighty. The Blue Jay pecked at me hard a few times but I was too fast for it. Though I will say that hard pointy beak looks hurtful...



Ta have anny fun with a live birdie, sometimes ya gotta tap it a few times ta get it ta move. Otherwise, it wantsta just sit there an hope ya get bored an go away.



Bite it again ta see if it is still fun ta play with...



Ya gotta also look away sometimes so it tries ta escape. Then ya can go catch it again. I had made sure ta bite the birdey so it couldnt fly an hadda run onna ground. Thats MY territory... Chasin it around is half the fun of catchin it.



Tommorrow, I show Iza how ta control a birdie!

Mommy's cat Snowball got pecked on the head by a blue jay, she had a bald spot behind her ear from being pecked by the jay so much. So Mommy's dog Sir Lass jumped up and caught the jay one day when it was dive bombing Snowball. He was very proud of himself and carried it around for weeks.

You did a good job Ayla. ~S,S,C & F

Wow Ayla! Mum won't let me go out, plus with no claws I probably wouldn't be able to subdue a birdie. Good for you.
