Cooper Bluejay

Cooper Bluejay was our best success story. Cooper lived free on 1.5 acres in Gardiner, NY. Although he was free, he was totally attached to Armand who owns the land and several buildings and does amazing ceramics. Cooper wonít leave Armand alone. Cooper mostly enjoys stealing Armandís supplies while heís working and hiding them. Armand has calculated that Cooper has stolen hundreds, if not thousands of dollars worth of items by now. Nevertheless, Armand loves Cooper.

We met Armand and Cooper because one day, Wildlife Watch got a call from a woman who said that a bluejay was hanging around her driveway who appeared friendly and had a bright blue band on his ankle. Wait a minute, I said, thereís a sign up at the supermarket with a blue band on a bluejay. I ran up to the Shoprite and prayed that it hadnít been taken down. There it was! We called Armand and Carolyn who had posted it and Cooper had a happy ending!

Carolyn said that Cooper is so smart that he builds little pyramids with stones to mark a place where he is hiding something (usually food). Itís also how Armand can find some of his belongings.
