The Blue Jay is a very aggressive bird at the feeders, because of its size and character. Even though some people do not like to attract the Blue Jay, they are a beautiful addition to the winter backyard.

Housing: Open nesting flat platform are necessary, as in their natural habit they are attracted to flat spaces on tree branches.

Food: Offer a variety of food, to attract the maximum amount of Blue Jays to your area. Peanuts, black and striped sunflower seeds, elder berries, cherries, dogwood and acorns are Blue Jay favorites! Since the blue jay’s bill is powerful and all purpose, it can handle the peanuts either in the shell or out. Suet is also something that attracts jays.

How to attract: Install a bird bath, put out a variety of seeds, berries, and suet, as well as maintaining flat platform areas around your yard.

Tip: Use baffles or put up temporary covers to keep the feeders from becoming clogged with ice and snow.
