This jigsaw puzzle features a blue jay eating peanuts. A blue jay can hold nuts with its feet and crack them open with its bill. A blue jay is a common backyard bird in much of North America. They are often seen in deciduous forest and orchards. This bird is often referred to as the caller of the woods because they are very vocal. It can call the distinctive phrase jay-jay. It is also known to growl, chatter, and whistle. The blue jay is a territorial bird. They are known to chase other birds from the bird feeders. If you would like to view a blue jay up close, you may want to try offering them peanuts in an area that is away from other bird feeders.
