Love those other titles in Beatrix’s pile!
Looks almost like a lover’s quarrel.Do they mean that lady blue jays are also called Jason?
I’m with you, Elvis. I don’t understand them either.
Bird watching cats…. Puck with the binoculars around his neck …people birders should love this!
No wonder they fight so much. They must all be terribly confused.
Jason is always the cause of problems.
I’m in agreement with Elvis – I don’t much understand birds either.
A long-time RP character of mine is named Jayson. I got the name from a classmate I had in high school. I always liked the name Jason, but I decided I liked that other spelling better. :D
I first read Beatrix’s line in the last panel as “Classic Jason movie” and went, what????!
Neither do I, Elvis. They are very peculiar fruit.
See, if this had been set in Australia, the Bluejays might all be named Bruce.
Or maybe – if they were somewhere else – Zathras.
OT – Simba
No worries, Elvis. Very few understand you so you’re even.
I saw a very funny, Jason fight, about 2 months ago! I had just parked my car (because I live in Brooklyn NY, were they make you move your car twice a week!) I saw Jason, screaming his love for Jason, who was sitting up in a tree, when a bigger Jason swooped down knocked him off a fence post and they began to rumble on the sidewalk! The loud, feather plucking fight, lasted all of 15 seconds!
Oh Elvis! You’re not meant to understand them. You just watch them and occasionally chitter at them.
Elvis toe beans! Under glass.
It’s time to flip our BCN calendars to the swashbuckling pirate crew of September.
About birds – Elvis just remember not to tell them your business.
What’dya knows. JSON JQuerying about JSON.
Okay, that was a bad pun. I thinks I needs to has a cup o Java to refresh before I Scripts puns.
I finds this odd. Cats talking about birds and all and not thinking about eating them. What’s wrong with ya, cats? You forgets you wants to eats them?
Here a Jason, there a Jason, they’re everywhere
Neither do we Elvis, neither do we.
Hey, it’s September. We may be seeing new “Swan Eaters” soon.
Elvis, I don’t understand people. Do as I do: sit back and enjoy the show.
Elvis might not understand birds, but Alfred Hitchcock certainly did.
The Happenings: See You in September
I’ll be right here watching the birds all fight
With my binocs, it is quite a sight
My, blue jays, oh my
You’ve been fighting ’til September
You have been there every day since last week,
Here we are,
You give us such entertainment
As you argue about Jason
Is he really worth all the aggravation?
Have a good time, but remember,
Can be such a waste of time
You’ve been fighting through September,
Wouldn’t it be more fun
To go soaring through the skies?
Jays are shriekers. We don’t have them out here. I miss them, along with cardinals, robins, and red-winged blackbirds.
What we know about the Blue Jays is that the Orioles beat ‘em 4-2 last night in Toronto. (They, the Blue Jays not the Orioles, went back to home games in Toronto recently after starting the season using Buffalo’s stadium as their home field due to Canada’s COVID restrictions.)
Friday the 13th?
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: Welcome, Captain of the Argos. Have you completed your quest for the golden fleece?
Captain Jason: Alas, Your Majesty. We completely failed in our mission.
The Queen: And why was this?
Captain Jason: We all have the name Jason. Just imagine saying “Jason, unfurl the sails,” and have ten sailors climbing up the rigging.
The Queen: That is unfortunate.
Enter Adobe Style and Maat-Tilda with a friend
Maat-Tilda: We have created for you this golden tunic, Your Majesty.
The Queen: How lovely.
Captain Jason: How did you get that fleece.
Adobe Style: My friend here, Aurelia is a golden sheep.
Captain Jason: But I have sailed the seven seas to fine the golden fleece.
Aurelia: You only had to ask.
If you’ll need a birdiefight
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Jason
And Jason, when you call me, you call me …Jason, well?
Jason paint your pictures
About who it’s gonna be
By now I should know better
You’re named the same as me
But tell me all about our little confuse at the bath
Oh Jason you can always tell me off and pretty rough
I’m with you, Elvis. I don’t understand birds. Also, TBoG! [Toe Beans on Glass, for those lacking their handy reference glossary].
Other than they’re from Toronto?
We don’t have blue jays here. We have green jays.
Based on this, you should be able to guess where in the United States I live.
What a day for the Jasons
Five cats for blue jays to annoy
Jasons lost in a day scream
Screamin’ makes them bonkers with joy
And even if birds ain’t really on cats’ side
It’s one of those days for cats to stay inside
Only Tommy can take a walk in the sun
Jason-chasin’ is not how Tommy has fun
Everyone likes Tommy, and he likes everyone
Jays are havin’ a sweet scream
They’ve been screamin’ since they woke up today
It’s a regular Jason thing
‘Cause they’re the ones Cat made this way
And even if their manners could improve by far
They couldn’t care less about how rude you say they are
Tomorrow you’ll pay the dues for spillin’ their tea
A poop on the glass for bein’ a nosy kitty
And you can be sure that if they’re feelin’ right
The screamin’ will last right up to the night
Tomorrow at breakfast you may block up your ears
Jays have been screamin’ for a thousand years
What a day for a Jason
Custom-made for day screamin’ joy
Screamin’ brings them beaks full of joy

Sun is shinin’ in the sky
There ain’t a cloud in sight
It’s stopped rainin’ everybody’s in the play
And don’t you know
It’s a beautiful new day, hey hey
Runnin’ down the avenue
See how the sun shines brightly in the morning
On birdbaths where once was nothing
Mr. Blue Jay is yapping here today, hey hey
Mr. Blue Jay please tell us why
You has to squabble away for so long (so long)
Where did ye go wrong?
You has to quarrel away for so long (so long)
Where did thee go wrong?
Hey you with the catty face
Welcome to the quarrelsome place
An investigation, Mr. Blue Sky’s up there waitin’
And today is the day we’ve waited for
Oh Mr. Blue Jay please tell us why
You had to lie away for so long (so long)
Hey there Mr. Blue
We’re not pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Everybody laughs at you
Mr. Blue, you didn’t do it right
And so comes Mr. Oversight creepin’ over
Now his hand is on your shoulder
Never mind I’ll remember you this
I’ll remember you this way
Hey there Mr. Blue (Jay)
We’re not pleased to be with you (Jay)
Look around see what you do (blue)
Everybody laughs at you.
La la llllaaa… La la la la… Laaaa…. Laaaaaaa!
with apologies to Electric Light Orchestra .
My friend has two in her backyard. She calls one Blue and the other Jay, interchangeably.
Well, I now have a package delivery story. On Friday, I ordered three jugs of kitty litter to pick up at Target, but apparently someone beat the store employees to the shelf and they only had one jug left. So I automatically got free FedEx home delivery for the remaining two. Supposedly two day delivery. I’m in southwest Virginia near the Tennessee border. The kitty litter started out in Pennsylvania, went to North Carolina, then to Dublin, VA, about an hour north of here. Supposedly it will be delivered today. We’ll see.
Haha. My name is Jay. A lot of Jays are short for Jason or Jacob or such. However my name is just as it is, Jay. Like the letter. Like my bird, which I do see around here from time to time but like me they seem to be shy.
Still a better love story than Twilight.
OT: The R saga continues…
How dare Jason cheat on JaSoN with jASON
Okay, it’s that time of the year. I have my Kliban cat calendar and my Gorey cat calendar; will BCN be joining my wall of cats for 2022? Inquiring cat minds want to know.
Blue Jasons are noisy, but Steller Jasons are the worst!
Blue jays, along with hummingbirds, are among the bullies of the bird world.
July, August, September, October, November == JASON.
For GSDMom, prayers for a smooth procedure tomorrow.
You should be ashamed, Jason.
If there’s going to be a BCN collection named for Bea, I would love to see it called, “Beatrix Looks Things Up.”♥
