Blue Jay

Blue Jays are big bossy loud birds that often chase other birds away from bird feeders.

But they do help other birds!
Blue Jays are great at screaming out warning sounds when hawks are around, and other birds know to go hide or the hawk may come eat them!
They also will work together with other blue jays to try and fight back against hawks that come to attack.
And some blue jays are even able to make the same sounds as a hawk to confuse them!
