Sitting Pretty

Sumner, United States

Artist's Description

Blue Jay sitting in the Ash tree in my backyard in northeast Iowa.
Despcription: Bright blue above with much white and black in the wing and tail; white below; black facial markings; prominent crest.
Voice: Raucous ‘jay-jay’, harsh cries, and a rich variety of other calls. One is almost identical to the scream of the Red-shouldered Hawk.
Habitat: Chiefly oak forest, but now also city parks and suburban yards, especially where oak trees predominate.
Nesting: 4-6 brown-spotted greenish eggs in a coarsely built nest of sticks lined with grass and well concealed in a crotch or forked branch of a tree, often a conifer.
Range: East of the Rockies, from southern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.
