Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata)

The Jays are daily visitors to the Laurel Oak and, as you can see, they come for the plump acorns. Very vocal birds.

Shown on Florida Native Plant: LAUREL OAK; DIAMOND OAK (Quercus laurifolia)

They also readily come to platform feeders as can be seen in this photo from March 2013

  1. One of my favorite birds! Since I am still waiting for my Pin Oak to make acorns, I feed them peanuts – raw and unsalted. I love watching their antics!
