Whiskey Jack Fun
The Whiskey Jacks have been entertaining our Voyageur Crew lately. Canadian Jays, grey jays or camp robbers are another name for these fun to watch and feed birds.
One time when we were out ice fishing and not catching, I kept myself entertained for hours by feeding these hungry camp robbers. I was relaxing on shore with a bag of pretzels and the birds were patiently waiting all around me. I tossed a few broken pieces onto the snow for them and they would soar in to pick them up. They were having difficulties with the hard pieces of pretzels so I decided to chew the pretzels a bit before handing them out. Before long I had birds resting on my cap, in my hand and on my boot waiting for more pretzels to be chewed up. Luckily the contents of the bag disappeared before my jaw fell off and right about the time the anglers were ready to leave.
