Blue Jay

Blue Jay

 

The Blue Jay received its name because of the "jay" call it makes when communicating with other Blue Jays, whether it is warning of impending danger or just socializing. Of course, we all can figure out why the "Blue" was added to the name!

 

Blue Jays mate for life. Although the average life span of the Blue Jay in the wild is about 7 years, there have been some Blue Jays who have lived up to 17 years!
