The primary difference between male and female blue jays is that males collect nesting materials and food, while females handle the majority of nest construction and incubation. Observing the mating and nesting behaviours of male and female blue jays reveals differences between the sexes. Males and females are of comparable size and share similar plumage coloration.
Blue jays are intelligent birds with complex social structures. They create permanent familial relationships. They are distinguishable by their brilliant blue colour and strong, unmistakable call. They inhabit a variety of forest types, but tend to prefer oak-dominated habitats. They consume nuts, seeds, and certain grains. It is also believed that they consume the eggs and nestlings of other bird species.
Blue jays communicate vocally and by body language, and it appears they use diverse cries for different sorts of communication and messages. They appear to warn one another of approaching predators, and if they feel endangered, they can turn violent.
Blue jay habitats are most prevalent in southern Canada, the eastern and central United States, including Texas and Florida, and eastern Canada. Northern blue jays and younger birds are likely to migrate a few hundred miles south during the winter, however many blue jays live year-round in the same location.
