Blue Jays

.

Loud and boisterous, the Blue Jay is a fairly common bird over two-thirds of the U.S. as well as in Canada.

They fly with strong wing beats that allow them to ‘bullet’ through the air at high speed!

I hear Blue Jays every morning at sunrise.  Already busy looking for food, they are scouring the trees and ground below for seeds and small insects.

Blue Jays also love acorns!  Their fondness for them is credited with helping spread oak trees after the last glacial period.

So if you love oak trees, thank a Blue Jay next time you see one!  😊
