Blue Jays

When I went out to my porch, I saw a bold blue jay. Jays are unusual for Virginia. This jay was in the oak tree buzzing the squirrels.

Jays in animal folklore mean 'being bold' and 'proper use of masks'. My experience with these birds has been when I was dive bombed by a mama jay who was protecting her fledgling.
