    Hmm. What the hell is with the toothy opening on the roof of his mouth? Never knew birds had something like that, now I must google this shit. Also, bluejays are the assholes of the bird community. Those obnoxious bastards wake me every morning & chase all my other yard birds off. It is fun to watch them dive bomb our hawks. They've got huge balls, I'll give them that.

    That's a Scrub Jay, not a blue Jay.

     

    Edit: RIP OP. That bird has murder in its eyes. I've been harassed be those a-holes my whole life.

    blue jays are pretty but fucking abominable

    they will peck out the eyes of birds and other small animals so they can't compete with them

    A cat will at least put them out of their misery with a quick bite but the bluejay leaves them blind and helpless to a slow death

    nature is metal dude

    We had three blue jays who would come into our yard and eat the food we put out for the other critters. They had a lot of personality and then one of them got injured so it couldn't fly. It stayed around our yard and I built a shelter for it. It kind of became my buddy. It would hop around the yard and porch while I sat outside drinking coffee (in the morning) and beer (in the evening). The other two would join it more often than not. I would have to do a sweep of the yard before I let my dog out because even though she's old she still has a pretty strong prey drive. You can see where this is going...

    One day my mother-in-law was house-sitting for us and well, she didn't check the yard before letting my dog out. I cried that day.

    In college I took an ornithology course. For one of our field trips, we went out to a professor's property and set up mist nets to catch birds for up-close examination and counting. It was the first time I had ever held a small bird.

    You can immediately feel how light and fragile they are. Its tricky to balance between keeping hold of one and not hurting it. And yet this tiny, fragile creature bit the heck out of my hand with all its might! It didn't hurt, didn't even break the skin. But it was still impressive to watch something that small fight back against something to big. Definitely made me respect nature and living things even more.

    Used to have a house surrounded by trees. Would leave peanuts out for the Blue Jays. One day a Jay came around the perimeter of the house, perching near each window until he found me inside, squawking at me to bring more peanuts outside, I guess.

    A monster resembling a blue jay that walks on two legs like a man. It drools constantly. Its feathers are blood blue, and its eyes glow blue. It is said that only silver can harm the creature. Now you will know why you fear the night.

    if you touch a baby bird the mother stops feeding it then it dies of starvation.
