Can’t Stop Chirping

Managaye Dear Rupali ji aapaki parkhi nazar ko. Salute to your attention to detail, dear Rupali Ji. Rupali Ji is a friend and fellow blogger who shares fantastic pictures on her blog. Thank you, Rupali Ji, for pinpointing it. I wanted to share it in the same write-up. But the post became too long, so I thought of sharing it in another post. And then I got busy with so many things that it remained unshared.

So here I am sharing the painting of the bird I did, especially for Rupali ji and all my Adbhut friends who wondered about the second birdie but did not ask.

Now moving on to our blue darling- The Blue Jay. A little bit of trivia to banta hi hain!

This common, large songbird is a familiar native to eastern North America. Has a perky crest; blue, white, and black plumage; and noisy calls. Blue Jays are known for their intelligence and complex social systems with tight family bonds. Their fondness for acorns is credited with helping spread oak trees after the last glacial period. Blue Jays are known to take and eat eggs and nestlings of other birds; most of their diet is composed of insects and nuts.

Thousands of Blue Jays migrate in flocks along the Great Lakes and Atlantic coasts, but much about their migration remains a mystery.

The Blue Jay frequently mimics the calls of hawks, especially the Red-shouldered Hawk. These calls may inform other jays that a hawk is around or may be used to deceive other species into believing a hawk is present.

Blue Jays lower their crests when feeding peacefully with family and flock members or tending to nestlings. The crest is raised and erect when they are threatened and agitated.

The pigment in Blue Jay feathers is melanin, which is brown. The blue color is caused by scattering light through modified cells on the surface of the feather barbs.

The symbolic significance of Blue Jays in different cultures.

Blue jays relate to everything from strength to confidence to communication, depending on the context in which you see them.

For some, these birds are known to be loud, aggressive, and mean. However, certain cultures see them as lucky or a symbol of good things to come.

And according to some animal spiritualists seeing a blue jay a lot within a short period could indicate it’s coming to you as a force of spiritual guidance.

Repeatedly seeing a bluejay around you suggests that angelic energies are trying to convey some vital information that might significantly impact your life.

Blue Jays are commonly associated with communication, honesty, forgiveness, and transformation.

If a bluejay happens to show up in your life, it implies that you need to be more assertive in your interactions with others and be mindful of the individuals you are interacting with.
Additionally, this gorgeous bird encourages you to be brave and pursue your ambitions. Seeing a bluejay could mean you have reached a spiritual awakening and can now communicate directly with the Divine.

As I was googling info about the blue boy, I also came across a movie by the same name Blue Jay. Have anyone of you seen the movie. Plan to watch it.

On a second thought and looking at these pictures, these do look like angry birds, as the MOH had rightly commented. And that must be why the angry avians didn’t want to share screen. HAHA…Whatever. We all have an intrinsic need to express ourselves in whatever way possible. And ‘This Adbhut Life! ‘ gives me that beautiful space to keep chirping.

Cheers to our more chirps. Have a beautiful day, friends.
