Gamini Ratnavira Blue Jay

Another great bird print from artist Gamini Ratnavira...As with most blue jays, this pair will probably stay with their mate for life.  They prefer to live in areas where there is an abundance of oak trees since acorns are a favorite part of their diet.  They store nuts and seeds in a pouch inside their mouths, much like squirrels, and carry them to a safe hiding place for eating at a later time.  Some blue jays migrate south during winter, but many do not. These intelligent creatures are very social with a large "vocabulary" and an ability to mimic other noises including people, cats, and hawks.
