Bluejays can be seen in the Northeast of the U.S. and Canada for the duration of 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, young and old ones.
They are a tight-knit group and they often flock together often descending upon birdhouses en-masse.
Although they look pretty and cute these birds squawk loud like crows and they seem to be 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 try to sit on the perches of the smaller feeders, their wings start flapping as they try to get the food out. Realising their deilema 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 frolick and forage for food.
The colours exposed by these birds look extraordinary, especially against the backdrop of a white winter snowy morning.
