The Blue Jay Way

Each morning, weather permitting, I sit outside on our screened in deck and drink coffee while I read my devotional for the day.

I’ve noticed that nearly every time I’m out there, I see a blue jay.  I’m not keen enough to know if it the same blue jay or not, but that darn bird is always in my yard.  They are beautiful creatures, but quite noisy and a bit of a bully.

I looked up what it means online – bluebirds signal happiness – what about blue jays?

It’s mixed.  All of it was a bit new-agey for me, but the Sioux said it’s a sign of “double clarity” (blue on blue sky).  Some say it’s about communication you need to do, to stand your ground and not throw all your energies into too many various things.  Other cultures, say it is a bad omen – a sign of the devil – a harbinger of bad news.

I think my favorite interruption came from Wiki Answers:
Q: What does seeing a blue jay mean?
A: It means you got eyes!  Be grateful!


The best of times, the worst of times?

I’m sure it also has something to do with the various birdfeeders we have in the trees….but that is a theory too.
