Photo Share: Hungry Blue Jay

Don't get in between me and my nuts! Blue Jays eat fruit, nuts, berries, seeds, and suet. One of their favorite foods at the feeders are peanuts in the shell.

You’ll find that they will shuffle through the seeds and pick them up in their bill to test the weight. If it's not heavy enough they'll pick up another to compare the weight of the seeds. It's not worth their while to eat or cache seeds that are dried out or spoiled.
