Paint Party Friday Week 7 Year 11

 For Paint Party Friday this week I have painted a Jay, belonging to the same family as the crow, raven, rook, magpie and jackdaw. The blue feathers are a wonderful colour, and when we lived in Wales these birds were quite common and I found a lot of the blue feathers.

Your jay is beautiful. We have a lot of them here, I love to see the flash of blue in their feathers. Have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie

How beautiful the drawn jay. I like them very much. In the old apartment I used to watch him in front of the balcony on an old oak tree and the boys too.
I wish you a happy 1st of May, hug Elke

Jays are such intelligent birds. I haven't seen one for sometime.
We have both Gray and Blue Jays here.
Beautiful painting, Wendy.
Enjoy the weekend

We have here a BLUE GREY TANAGER, some folk on the island of Tobago call them Blue Jean (seen a lot around the September month)
HAPPY PPF

great bird art Wendy. Our blue jays here in the US are larger and have lots of blue feathers. Happy PPF!
