Gary:
This is one of my scrub jays at work going after a peanut with a moth in its mouth.

I can’t say that I’ve ever tried this, but the combination must add a smooth aftertaste with just a hint of piquancy to mildly spike the flavor of an otherwise bland diet.  I think I’m impressed with my scrub jay.

Barbara:
Ah, yes … the scrub jay is a true gourmand. /Gary
