Blue Jays

Recommended Posts

As I have mentioned before, I have a very large feeder and Blue Jays frequent it.

I also throw out Peanuts in the shell for the Squirrels.  They eat and go home.

Right after I started throwing out Peanuts in the shell, I got almost as many Blue Jays as Squirrels taking them.

The Blue Jays are fascinating to watch.  It is not unusual for one Blue Jay to swallow a Peanut in the shell whole.  Then swallow another one.  Then it will take a third one in it's beak and fly away.

They hoard food like Squirrels do.  They are just as prevalent during the Winter as the Summer.  

They don't cause me any trouble and are an interesting addition to our critters that eat here all year round,

They are really noisy when an Owl is sitting in one of our trees.  The Jays make all kinds of noise and dive bomb the Owls to try to drive them away.
