Blue Jay


Blue Jays are common songbirds in our area. They have a perky crest and blue, white and gray plumage.

Blue Jays are known to be intelligent and live in a complex social groups with tight family lives.

What else? They love acorns.

Armed with all encyclopedic knowledge about Blue Jays, I have to admit that this is a world wide web premiere of blue jays photography at Chidlovski Blog Chidlovski.

I was in Woburn when I stumbled into a group of fancy blue and white and gray fellas exchanging loud and short chant like phrases. They looked familiar to me. At first, I thought it was a support group of some Scandinavian hockey team. It sounded odd – why would some finnish sport fans come to support Team Suomi in Woburn, MA in mid July. Totally surrealistic idea!

Then, I realised that they were local guys. Local blue jays! I made a few pics with them.

They cheered me up and said hello to all our readers!

Off Season Hockey Memories

It’s hot in Boston.

I am thinking about upcoming season, latest trades and buyouts in the Bruins.

It’s hot in Boston.

Good time for being nostalgic about good old times hockey, the Big Bad Bruins and big wins of the 1970s!

Flashback from the past. Parade in Boston after winning the 2011 Stanley Cup. Thousands of happy people on the streets of Boston. Then, there is this kid on Causeway Street. His t-shirt has the 2011 Cup and says:

“I’ve waited my whole life for this.”

The kid is 7 or 8 years old and obviously there were kids much older than him who waited for the Cup all their lives.

Perhaps, even his father can use a bigger size of this shirt.

Good feeling to share in town.

We are the Champions.

It was 5 years ago!

Time make a batch of t-shirts for 6-year olds next year:

“I’ve waited my whole life for this.”

Lets go Bruins!
