Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

I was taking photos of the birds who eat at one of my feeders and did not notice until I downloaded the photos and viewed them close up, that this blue jay is missing half of it's top beak.

The bird certainly didn't seem to have any difficulty picking up and eating the seeds, and it looks as though it is getting enough to eat.

It's interesting and inspiring that nature often allows for and accommodates many anomalies and handicaps in both man and beast;-) Great photos of this determined bluejay!

I wonder what happened - it does look nice and podgy though so that's good. Lovely birds.
