Blue Jays love corn!





They don't seem to mind the company of Doves.

I watched my little Blue Jay repeatedly fill his beak with five kernels of corn, and then fly up to a tree branch to eat them.
One very well fed Blue Jay.

  9. They also love raw peanuts either in the shell or shelled. If they are in the shell, they perch on the edge of the roof and hit it against the gutter to crack it open.

  13. Denise, these are spectacular! I always love seeing the jays. We don't have as many here as in other places I've lived. But the squirrels eat us out of house and home!

  21. Terrific series of shots, Denise. I haven't seen Blue Jays in such a long time. I'd forgotten how beautiful they are. Eating 5 kernels of corn at one time is a lot for a bird.
