the blue jay




these are all captured in my back yard











The blue jay eats fruits, acorns, seeds, nuts, insects, mice and frogs.

Sometimes a blue jay will raid a nest for eggs and young birds.







They particularly love peanuts 

birds in motion
 these are fun shots to try and get




The blue jay is very aggressive and territorial.

Groups of blue jays often attack intruders and predators.









The blue jay does, however, save many a bird life.
 They are one of the first and loudest to scream alarm if a hawk or some such predator is in the area









this is the only shot not taken in my back yard
