A couple of places in the yard are home to clusters of plants in the Arum family - arrow shaped leaves that die back in early summer, leaving the flower spikes to grow the seeds to maturity. I was sitting quietly on the porch yesterday when I realized there was more blue jay squawking and mocking bird rasping that usual. I watched the territorial displays and tried to determine if there were chicks involved. After some time I realized the birds were gathering red berries, and then realized the disputes seemed to be over the cluster of berries next to the house. I think they were all getting buzzed from the berries!
