Hey!  You!  The blogger sitting on a post about Blue Jays hoarding acorns or Scrub Jays putzing around in family groups.   You with the photos of gorgeous Green Jays or unusual Unicolored Jays or enigmatic Eurasian Jays (see what I was doing there?).  Why haven’t you submitted your stuff to I and the Bird yet?  Haven’t you heard the subject is “Jays”?  I wasn’t talking about the letter or late night talk show hosts or illegal street-crossers.  The birds, man.

Send those photos and, especially, posts to naswick AT gmail.com.  Put IATB in the subject line.  I need them pronto.
