Bluejays can be seen in the Northeast of the U.S. and Canada for winter, even though they are also in places like Florida.
They are bright blue beautiful birds and are strikingly different from each other. There are skinny ones, fat ones, tall ones, short ones, and young and old ones.
They are a tight-knit group and often flock together, descending upon birdhouses en-masse.
Although they look pretty and cute, these birds squawk loud like crows and seem aggressive towards other bird species.
At times, these birds are even aggressive to other Bluejays.
Bluejays are too big for most feeders, and when they sit on the smaller feeders’ perches, their wings start flapping as they try to get the food out. Realizing their dilemma, they will defer to the open concept birdhouse instead.
I have been fortunate enough to see a bluejay pair appear, and within a minute of their arrival, another dozen swoop in for a snack. Bluejays numbering Fourteen frolics and forage for food.
These birds’ colours look extraordinary, especially against a white winter snowy morning.
