I set it up yesterday while our white Christmas was still in the making. There was no activity at the feeder until this morning. I watched and waited. At first only sparrows and finches showed up. After a little while my patience was rewarded, and jays finally made an appearance. They easily helped themselves to their favorites in the mix I had waiting for them.
The male first came in to test the waters.
His mate followed shortly thereafter.
I will anxiously be awaiting more opportunities. I'll have to increase the sunflower seed content of the mix.
