Known as the ALARM of the forest, the Blue Jay is a large bright blue bird who wears a black necklace and a crest on his head.
They are non-migrators, also, one of the few birds who will cache food. Jays will "Scream like a Hawk" to scatter other birds at a feeder.
I have determined that a Blue Jay is the best defense against squirrels-- and was hoping to capture them chasing the squirrels away--
Another time , maybe.........................Ever see a squirrel tremble?
