I have been doing a lot of research on birds and I see others have bird questions too! My farm seems to bring a lot of birds around the house. We don't get too many blue jays though. I read that you should have large, open feeders for them. I'm thinking about building some large, flat (with sides to keep food in) feeders. What kind of feeders do you have for blue jays?

Blue Jays are one of my favorite birds. They do like large platform type feeders, and their favorite seeds are sunflower seeds.

We built some ground feeders last year. I love blue jays, they are beautiful, but they are "bossy" and messy. They are good too, they chase some predators away. We feed them sunflower seeds too.

We never built a bigger feeder but it didn't stop the blue jays from coming. They still visit us daily. They actually land on the biggest feeder we have. They knock a lot of the seed on the ground. They are so pretty that I don't care if they make a mess.
