The trouble maker

You know when Jays are about at Merlindale, they are the backyard bullies who are regularly chased by smaller nimbler birds terrified of losing eggs. Jays are notorious for the evil habits but they have grown on Merlindale's residents all the same partly because they are beautiful but also because they are fantastic indicators of a richer healthier ecosystem. There is always a space, even for the most aggressive birds at Merlindale.
