Bird of the Month
The Blue Jay
Members of the Corvid family, Blue Jays are extremely intelligent, and will hold nuts with their feet while pecking them open. They love peanuts, acorns, suet, and sunflower seeds, so these are great options to attract them to your backyard. Blue Jays live in tight family systems and are very social.

The pigment in the feathers is melanin, so its actually brown, but the structure of the feathers reflects blue light waves, making them appear blue in color.
