The blue jay’s bill shape is long, pointed, and strong. It is meant for tugging, tearing, and cracking.
Blue jays are not only amazing in colour, they are also smart. These large blue and white birds with crested heads and strong pointed beaks are unmistakable.
Blue jays favour corn, hard-boiled or scrambled eggs, meat scraps, fresh or dried fruit, grapes, nuts, peanuts, suet, and sunflower seeds. They prefer tray type feeders, but will try to extract food from any feeder available. Blue jays store food and have a remarkable memory to find what they have hidden.
Blue jays can be found in all types of forest and parkland settings. They travel in small flocks, moving from one feeding area to another. They are always wary and on the lookout for danger.
