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

BLUE JAY CONQUERS DISABILITY

This Blue jay proves how determined some creatures are in the animal world to survive.

If you click on the picture you will notice that the top half of the jay's beak is missing and probably wonder how it manages to eat.

This one has overcome his/her disability by scooping up the food with the lower part of it's beak. I sprinkle seed out on the beam especially for this bird and chase away the other birds until the jay has eaten it's fill.
I managed to video the bird so you can see how the jay feeds.

It's interesting to see how he's learned to scoop his food, rather than peck at it. What a beautiful little trooper!
