Eastern Blue Jays have started to come to the area of the Oak grove next to the little farm pond in recent days. They are at the feeder in the early mornings. Eastern Blue Jays are a bit larger than the Western Jays or the Scrub Jays. They are a bright blue, and white with black accents. They have a long pointed medium-thick black bill.
The Jays roost in the woods in front of the little farm here. The Blue Jays eat seeds, fruits, nuts, some spiders and occasional worms or caterpillars. The Blue Jays have a very loud screeching song and also have a musical couple of high-low notes for the calls. I am glad to see these beautiful birds! I took these pictures on May 1, 2012 in my yard.
