Blue Jay

by Brison

     In this paragraph we are learning about Blue jays habitat. Their migration remains a mystery. Their habitat is declining because they don’t have enough food. The benefits of having it in your backyard is very low. They live in the wild by eating acorns and bird feed. They have the same nesting box as a steller’s jay.

            I like blue jays because when I was little I always saw blue jays and thought they were satisfying. . Blue jays are 22-30 cm tall which is 9-12 inches.There beaks are small and pointed.The wingspan of the Blue Jay is 17 inches long. The color of a Blue Jays are blue white and black with a cool design on the tail.Blue Jays make a large variety of calls. The most often heard is a loud jeer. It also makes clear whistled notes and gurgling sounds..  And that’s why I think blue jays are cool.

Blue Jays eat all kinds of fruit and veggies. Blue jays are omnivores; they eat nuts, acorns, insects, and fruit. They eat grasshoppers, caterpillars, and beetles. But they mostly prefer acorns and nuts. They carry their acorns and nuts with their feet and then when they get to their nest they open them with their beak.

            Blue jays are losing food because of other animals. And we can’t help. You can’t find if the climate changes to damage the bird/home. Predators of adult blue jays include falcons, owls and hawks while nestling blue jays may become prey to snakes, crows, squirrels, raccoons, cats, other blue jays and birds of prey. That’s why I love blue jays.

            Did you know that the Blue Jay is one of the loudest birds. The Blue Jay makes variety musical sounds like harsh cries. The Blue Jay also can imitate a scream red shouldered hawk that is so cool. Blue Jay’s head has light blue on it with some black and white on it and their body is blue. Their wings are so cool, because they have multi colors like light blue and white, blue on it. That is so amazing that their wings are that cool. The Blue Jay is nearly a foot long .We have a Blue Jay that lives in our backyard. I like the Blue Jay ,because it is beautiful and in color and one comes into our house in the summertime and sits on our table chair. Sometimes we leave food out of it  so when it comes in it has something to eat.

         They live in the forest throughout the Eastern and Central areas and they also live in peoples backyards. I have some that live in my backyard and they are awesome.  One of the Blue Jays favorite is acorns just like squirrels. They also eat corn, grains, berries, seeds, insects and peanuts. I love to eat some seeds and berries I don’t know about insects. I don’t think they would be all that good. Some Blue Jays are permanent residents of the range. Some Blue Jays may migrate one year that’s  cool only one time a year. Some people think if the Blue Jays don’t have food they think the younger one will migrate South. I would like to migrate South for the winter. It would be so much fun

            Blue  jays are especially fond of acorns, peanuts, corn and Black oil Sunflower seeds. In addition to seeds and grain feeders, blue jays enjoy eating from suet feeders as well. If you put up a feeder for the Blue Jay you need Shrubbery where birds can seek cover. You can also put it on a tree where they can sit while they eat. I would put my mind in the tree now. I can see them eat. Also make sure there is water nearby for the birds to drink and bathe in. don’t drink out of there water it would not be good for you. Alway clean their feeder so they don’t spread disease.

The Blue Jays are not endangered, their climate does not have an impact on their lives. There is food in the winter months and they can  stay all year round. There are many predators that would think that the blue jays are a tasty treat. Like the falcons, owls, and hawks. While nesting blue jays may become prey to snakes, crows, squirrels, raccoons, cats. Other blue jays and birds of prey. Put tray feeders or hopper feeders on post rather than hanging feeders. Planting oak trees with acorns available for blue jays.
