|Blue Jays are capable of making a wide variety of sounds. In addition to the loud and often heard jay! jay! call, a bell-like tull-ull call, a melodious whistled teekle, and a variety of chattering, harsh notes and growls may be heard. Blue Jays also produce a remarkable imitation of the scream of a Red-shouldered Hawk. |
Its diet is mostly vegetarian, including especially acorns, beech nuts, and seeds. Blue Jays also eat a variety of animal foods including grasshoppers, beetles, caterpillars, and small vertebrates. Blue Jays are intelligent and adaptable, taking advantage of almost any food resource, and will readily take to back yard bird feeders

What a funny posture for the jay. The colors are wonderful, and the details are very sharp. The blues are beautiful against the whites of the snow. Well done and TFS. : )

Very beautiful blue jay! Excellent POV and the detail is very sharp. I wonder...did you zoom for this shot? I can never get a super clear shot of birds that are further than a few meters away from me. Great work!
Wonderful shot, Donald. beautiful bird with that fantastic snow covered bg. and a real nicd caption too.
