Keeping track of two fledgling jays while gathering bugs and seeds to feed them—the only rest coming after the babies were so full they fell asleep on the ground. The adult jay perched up in a nearby tree, keeping an ever watchful eye on its sleeping babes below, all while taking a few moments to preen and take a much deserved rest.
