Saturday afternoon I was sitting in the house when I heard a very loud bird in the backyard. It sounded like a hawk, so I went to the window expecting to see a hawk chasing down one of our chipmunks. Many of my neighbors were standing in their backyards looking to the sky, so the bird definitely had garnered much attention. When it finally flew down to take a drink out of the bird bath I realized it was not a hawk but a blue jay. I didn't realize it, but blue jays often mimic hawks. My friend, Rob, told me they have even been known to mimic cell phones.
