  Blue jays are some of the most common backyard visitors in North America.  During the summer months, they spend their time in breeding pairs, often chasing other birds away.  However, during the cold winter months, their behavior changes.

Groups of around 15 blue jays sometimes gather together in the winter to form what is known as a foraging flock.  these groups may be more successful at finding food during harsh times thanks to more birds scouting at once.  that means when one bird finds food, every member of the flock is able to take advantage of it.  Blue jays are also excellent guards.  When they spot a predatory bird such as an owl or hawk, they alert all birds in the area.  the more blue jays that are around, the harder it is for a large bird of prey to get the drop on one.

In addition to scouting for possible food sources, blue jays also depend on hidden caches they make during the fall months.  These are usually made up of acorns buried in the ground.  However, like swuirrels and other animals that store food, sometimes blue jays do not come back for every cache.  this means many uneaten acorns are able to germinate and grow into oak trees.  In fact, blue jays have become the main way several species of oak are able to spread.  It is amazing the big impact one animal can make.
