Blue Jays are excellent imitators, mimicking the sounds of a variety of birds. One of the most frequent calls they produce is the ?Kee-eeeee-arr? screech of the red-tailed hawk. While blue jays are beautiful to look at, they can be quite annoyingly aggressive at bird feeders, driving away other birds. Many of my specimens come from education and rehabilitation facilities. This blue jay resides at the Ohio Bird Sanctuary.
