Whatchu lookin' at!?
Blue Jay in the Ice Storm
Pretty much everyone in my family has allergies to cats and dogs and other furry friends, and so we've never been able to have true "pets" in the sense of animals that live inside our house and allow us to cuddle with them and sleep in our beds with us. That's okay though! We have TONS of birds and chipmunks and squirrels outside that come to our home every single day for peanuts and bird food and other treats. They are just as much our 'pets' as those that someone buys in a pet store :)
This little guy is one example. He'd been visiting our home a lot as the winter was turning to spring and when the horrible ice storm hit and everything outside was covered in a thick layer of ice, he came and sat there on that bush, staring in the window until my dad went outside and remedied the frozen feeder situation!
