Do jays hide acorns? I have watched this one for about a month now. It appears to collect acorns from the old oak trees nearby and then fly down to the field and push them into the earth. Is it a sign of a hard winter to come? And - more importantly- will it remember where to find them??
Apologies for the poor picture but I was getting dressed and just noticed the jay, over the fence in the field, so snapped it through my window.
