Jay - The Food Storer

This Jay was busily searching out food amongst a grass verge and around a small copse.
They will bury food such as acorns to be consumed at a later date.




It remembered hiding something in this half rotted tree trunk.


Not a clear image, but you can see it actually found what it was looking for.
