Each morning I throw a few handfuls of peanuts in the shell out on my patio for the Western Scrub Jays and the Steller’s Jays. It’s amazing how fast they spot the peanuts and swoop down for a treat. Some jays quickly grab a peanut and fly off to crack the shell and eat the peanuts inside. Other jays pick up a peanut, drop it and pick up another peanut, then fly away.
