Blue Jay Feeding on Wood

WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY – MY FRONT PORCH – NORTH MIAMI, FL

This photograph of a blue jay feeding on a piece of driftwood on my front porch. The camera gear used on this blue jay photo was a Nikon D90 camera body attached to a Tamron 28-300mm zoom lens.

This common, large songbird is familiar to many people, with its perky crest; blue, white, and black plumage; and noisy calls. Blue Jays are known for their intelligence and complex social systems with tight family bonds. These birds have a fondness for acorns and is credited with helping spread oak trees after the last glacial period.

Blue Jays make a large variety of calls that carry long distances. Most calls are produced while the blue jay is perched within a tree. Usually these birds fly across open areas silently, especially during migration. Stuffs food items in throat pouch to cache elsewhere; when eating, holds a seed or nut in feet and pecks it open.
