Action in the Back Yard

This all happened too fast for me to get any photos, I’m sorry to say, but it was hilarious.  We have thought for some time that we have a nesting pair of scrub jays in our neighbor’s tree right by the fence, because of all the air traffic.  This morning we are sure.  The scrub jays – both of them – were attacking the resident squirrel – and he was running for his life!  Clearly protecting a nest.  I wonder if we’ll get to see the new ones when they hatch.
