We have many birds that visit our yard. We discourage blue jays when we can, as they bully other birds, pick fights and are generally loud and noisy.

We don't harm them, we just shoo them away.

This morning we had four Jays and two male Cardinals on the feeder outside our bedroom. A flock of Eurasians pecking at the mess squirrels left on the patio when they assaulted one of the feeders.

Didn't see much bullying.

About ten years back, we had a cat who would sit in the yard letting the jays come down an peck her on the head. This would go on for five or six minutes and then when one came down she would turn on her back and catch it. We started the sanctuary after she passed away.

Four feeders, suet cages and a small garden pond attracts birds all year, all four seasons.

As a bit of humor, I told my aunt in my last email to 'hug a tree feed a blue jay,'
Her husband replied- I'd never gotten an email from him before. It worried me~ I thought something had happened to my aunt.
Turns out he's a bird lover too and wanted to tell me about the ones they feed every morning.
Life is good. God bless the Internet.
