Blue Jay Steals Woman's Earbud
Occurred on September 14, 2022 / Merritt Island, Florida, USA
Info from Licensor: "I was practicing yoga in my backyard and this wild blue jay started flying low over me and around me. I could sense it was trying to land on my shoulders and it did. It also landed on my back for a little bit while I was stretching and on my straddle splits. It hung out for a bit and started pecking my phone and I think it was trying to carry it. When it was on my shoulder, I thought it was aiming for the earring but then it took my AirPod and flew to another tree. I went after it and it dropped it so I was able to get it back. It hung out for a bit after that then left. The interesting part is, my partner and I weren’t speaking on this day so when we made up the next next day I was excited to share my blue jay experience but as soon as I mentioned I had an interesting experience the day before he immediately said: “Is it about a blue jay?” Which was weird so I asked, 'How did you know about my blue jay?” Turned out he had a blue jay experience the same day while he was fixing our car. The blue jay took a piece from the car too. Our wild guess is it was the same blue jay since his experience happened later the day after my encounter. It was fascinating. Maybe the blue jay was trying to send a message for us to stop being silly and make up already. Lol. I don’t know."
