A friend sent me this note
We have a scrub jay that has been hunting smaller birds at our feeder this week. I saw it fly straight past the feeder a couple of times and wondered if it was a raptor. Then it flushed a goldfinch into our window and when the finch fell stunned to the deck the jay was on it. Did the same with a chickadee a couple of days later. My wife chased it off of the chickadee, then came in the house to get a towel to cover the injured bird but when she went back out the jay was flying away with the chickadee in its mouth.
