Jays.
Anyone know much about jays? I've seen a couple in the garden quite often recently. It looks like they might be nesting in next doors tree, I was watching them whilst having lunch just now.
Are they a pest? You hear a lot about their cousins, magpies, and their bad reputation. I've never heard much about jays though. They keep raiding our bird feeder for the peanuts but other than that they don't seem to be causing too much trouble.

They take eggs and baby birds much the same as magpies but are usually a bit shy so not seen as much. Also more solitary than other corvids

Loads of Jays round here near Common ( primary Oak woodland) quite shy, dont seem to bother the garden birds much. K

Uh oh, that doesn't sound so good. My pair must be exceptions then; they're far from shy! Always out there messing around. Pretty birds too, lots of different colours on them.

Bugger! I've got at least one box with tits nesting in right now as well.
Next question; any ideas of how I might dissuade the nasty sods from setting up home in nextdoor's tree?
