Blue Jays are a lot bigger than the regular backyard birds. I can’t tell if it’s the same blue jay that plunders our for-regular-backyard-birds feeder every morning and afternoon. If it is, I fear that my son may be right about his conjecture.
Me: “There’s this blue jay that ransacks our birdfeeder. Because of his size, whenever he lands on the feeder, the seeds shake off and scatter to the ground.”
Dante: “It must be under contract from the squirrel. ‘Mr. Squirrel. I understand you have a problem. A problem I may be able to assist you with. They call me Blue Jay.’”
Here are some photos of Meester Blue Jay and how he overwhelms our feeder (click on photo to enlarge):
