California Scrub Jay

Berkeley, California 94703, United States

Created By: Wholly H2O


California scrub jays inhabit scrublands, oak woodlands, and backyards. They eat mostly insects and fruits during the summer, and move on to a variety of nuts and seeds in winter. They will bury food throughout their territory and can remember these sites over long periods of time. Nesting pairs will defend their territory year-round and are known for deterring predators by diving, calling, and occasionally pecking. Predators include raccoons, skunks, crows, and bobcats, among others.
