Artist's Description

This handsome, noisy bird is known for it’s raucous voice and the wide variety of it’s calls, cries and screams. But like other jays, it also has a “whisper song”, a series of faint whistles and soft, sweet notes delivered from a perch hidden in the foliage. Blue Jays are omnivores, feeding on (among other things) fruits, seeds, nuts, insects, bird’s eggs, small birds, mice, treefrogs, snails, and even fish. In the spring and fall these birds number in flocks that sometimes number in the hundreds. Up in Canada they are a summer and winter resident.

The Blue Jay’s coloration is not derived by pigments, but is the result of light refraction due to the internal structure of the feathers; if a Blue Jay feather is crushed, the blue disappears as the structure is destroyed.
