Blue jays are the common large songbirds with a perky crest, and blue, white, and black plumage. They are noisy but so incredibly beautiful that I don’t mind their disruptive cawing. Sometimes they appear to bully other birds in order to clear the feeder. But I haven’t found them to be any pushier than other birds, just bigger, which causes other birds to let them have first dibs. Blue jays are known for their intelligence and complex social systems with tight family bonds. It’s not uncommon to see several on one feeder, especially where there’s a seed block. How they can pick out just the peanuts is beyond me, but they do–every time!
