Jays and Chickens and Fawns (oh my)

Last week a doe gave birth to at least one fawn in our front yard. We saw her nursing two fawns at the same time, but it wasn't clear whether she was wet-nursing for another doe or if she somehow had two fawns at the same time. And she ain't talking.

Later in the week, we just happened by a wandering chicken.

And the jays are everywhere this time of year. I think the ones we have mostly are Steller's Jays but I could be wrong. They are hard to get a good photo of so here's one I pulled from the interwebs:

I think they are funny because they don't walk. They just hop around like little feathery pogo sticks.
