blue jay is known as a trouble making bird. It often travels
in noisy family groups and they tend to scare away all of
the smaller birds. They eat the eggs and the young babies
of other birds and attack the nest by scaring the other
birds away by immitating the call of the hawk. They are
found through much of the areas of North America. They grow
to an average length of 11 inches in length and their wing
span tends to be 16 inches on average.
They reach sexual maturity less then 1 year after birth
and mate in the spring and summer. They usually net 2 or
3 times a year and usually have 3-7 young in their nest.
Their eggs are bluish or cream colored with brown spots
on them. Besides eating the young from other smaller birds
they eat insects, carrion, fruits and seeds.
