Mother Natures Darkside

As I walked out my front door yesterday I noticed something fall out of a tree in the front yard. Right behind it was a Blue Jay. The first thing I saw fall was a young bird. The Blue Jay landed beside it and began pecking at it. By the time I got to the young bird and scared off the Blue Jay the young bird was dying. It was a Morning Dove. This made me furious. I have heard of the Blue Jay doing a lot of things but this act was just pure evil. Just goes to show that man isn't the only evil being on this planet. X.

  1. Jays are in the Crow/Magpie family I believe. That would make sense then. The corvids prey on smaller birds - mostly hatchlings. I was very sad to see a crow snatch a starling chick last summer. I know birds rarely see all their chicks grow to adulthood, but it's a terrible thing to see.
