    It means spring has arrived! Yay!

    (that is according to the old song: Gone away is the bluebird, here to stay is the new bird... and that song was about winter so there ya go)

    Not according to reality. Bluejays don't migrate. We see them all winter, practically every day. Around here, it's the robin that's a sign of spring.

    I'm feeling literal today.

    No, to both.

    It was deemed unnecessary for me to attend kindergarten. Didn't need it.

    And you've proven that evaluation correct admirably. Knowing the days of the week, the weather. I'll bet you can even color inside the lines and everything.

    You're an inspiration to us all.

    Sorry. I've studied all the folklore of the Appalachians, diligently searching out bird lore. If you see an owl in the daytime, some say there'll be a wedding and some say a death. A crow on your house (maybe even your fence) is bad luck. Gold finches bode well, as do bluebirds. A robin sighting signals spring is here, and a cardinal sighting means it's going to rain. No luck with bluejays, either in finding lore about them or in determining whether they bring luck. I'd say, seeing a bluejay on your fence just means that you saw a bluejay on your fence.

    Uh oh. We also have a bunch of crows around our house.

    I'd say, seeing a bluejay on your fence just means that you saw a bluejay on your fence.
    Ah. Well then. The mystery is solved. Thanks!
