Animal Spotlight with Charlotte - Blue Jay
This intelligent bird has the ability to imitate other birds in the wild. Usually, the blue jay will copy the call of larger birds like hawks to scare other birds away. Another cool blue jay fact is that they bury acorns in the dirt to save for later, which is a huge help for spreading oak forests over North America.
Blue jays are known to feed on nuts, grains, beetles, and grasshoppers. If you have a blue jay visitor, she/he would be overjoyed with peanuts and sunflower seeds in a feeder!
