Pigeon Tart, you have captured the blue Jay so creatively. They enjoy upstaging all the other birds within their verdant stage presence. Congratulations ~ Sonia

Like Ilene below me ... I, too, had no idea what "corvid" meant ... I'll try and add that to my word knowledge (like an overstuffed suitcase, it's prone to pop out, however)

'screaming blue murder' what a killer (no pun intended) line. We call them "songbirds" as if they are always (naturally) melodious ... I think some of these birds could easily join a grunge rock band. Lol.

Totally grunge! Thought you might have gone with death metal though ;), No hope for a win, nowhere near my ku-est ku, but my muse was dying for this prompt. xomo

Crows sing about as well as I do, and that's not good. Best wishes Maureen...
