Look who joined us for breakfast this morning! A California Scrub Jay! As they usually forage in groups, it was not alone! While I was enjoying my freshly brewed cup of coffee & cereal with blueberries & strawberries, they were feeding on insects, fruits & vegetables growing in the backyard garden. Recent studies have shown in the animal Kingdom, they are amongst the most intelligent. Like humans & dolphins, they plan ahead, strategize & remember locations.
