Oh, this is so delightful. One year a blue jay (eastern) was decorating a 
next just above the patio. He had found a chewing gum wrapper, the shiny foil 
reflector kind, and would stick it in one spot in the test, step back and 
look at it, cocking his head back and forth, pull it out and reposition it 
and repeat the process. Sometimes it fell out of the test when he pulled it 
out and he'd swoop down and catch it midair. It was great fun to watch. 

I've stopped using those venetian blind tags because they do disappear.
