Scrub jays nest  in trees next to our backyard. Yesterday I captured what I thought was a feeding ritual; i.e., an adult teaches junior to eat. I’ve seen this ritual before, but this time, it appeared to be a lesson in survival. Not sure. Clearly, the adult puts the food in junior’s beak, then removes it. Junior is stunned. Photos are in the order they were shot. Thoughts?
